What others have said.

Also, I'll add that when your patrol cops are called to a scene, make sure they ask the hard questions to determine if a penal law crime really occurred. If it's a civil matter, don't be afraid for the LEO to say "no police report will be taken."

And in cases like that, protect your cops by making sure they document somewhere what it wasn't a crime.

And if a crime was committed and needs further investigation by detectives, ensure all the relevant details are included and the elements of the recorded crime is spelled out. Teach your patrol cops a little additional investigation can go a long way (It's always important to develop current talent to be future detectives).
