When writing a report for a criminal investigative analysis, a criminal investigative analyst should always provide a foundation for any conclusion reached. Language that implies certainty, unless there is an evidentiary foundation for such certainty (i.e., DNA results), should be avoided. When discussing issues of motive and intent, care should be given to not cross into the legal concept of intent and to not comment on the ultimate issue that may be before a jury (guilt/innocence). The report should be professional and devoid of biases.
