I agree with Mumma Bear. I have once had to make a statement to police, as did three of my children. All were full of spelling and grammar mistakes .... and at times the mistakes made the intentions of parts of the statements ambiguous. Solicitors are just as bad, or worse. I get sick of putting pink circles around all the spelling mistakes and typos (teacher habit) in every piece of correspondence I have had from solicitors ... and barristers even. They should employ better admin staff (older, probably .... because back in the day good spelling was a requirement of such a job). I have also worked for medical doctors, and engineers who were terrible spellers.
Hi Mumma Bear
From my experience hand written by the police officer as you speak...
Spelling probably not the priority, the officer/s usually focused on helping you to relax and focus at the time, but I entirely get what you're saying.
