Pocket Note Books
1. Procedure

1.1 It is a basic principle of police procedure that police officers and appropriate police staff will keep notes of their day to day duties to which they may later refer.

1.2 It is fundamental that these notes should be made at the time of the incident which is being recorded or, where circumstances prevent this, as soon as practicable after the event.

1.3 Such notes will be handwritten (electronic scratch pads will not be used for official note keeping) and all entries should be made in black ink. All notes will be kept in an official pocket notebook. No other form of note keeping is acceptable except:

• Where for procedural reasons another source document is normally used • Where for appropriate operational reasons another source document has been used

1.4 In these circumstances the fact a recordable incident has taken place, a brief description of it, and the nature and location of the original notes will be recorded in the pocket notebook (see also Para 7.3).

1.5 The pocket notebook must always be carried by officers and staff engaged on operational patrol, response and beat duties. Staff engaged in all other types of duty will carry their pocket notebook when performing duties where they are likely to encounter a scenario where a pocket notebook record is required.

1.6 To facilitate examination of pocket notebooks they will be written in the English language and script. Shorthand, languages and script other than English is not permitted. Entries must be of sufficient detail to allow a comprehensive account to be given.

1.7 The notebook can be used for drawing relevant plans or sketches, for example it might be used to draw a plan of a room that was searched to illustrate where certain items were found, or to illustrate and show measurements of a vehicle that was causing an obstruction.

1.8 District / Departmental Commanders and Unit Heads will decide the number and location of issuing points. Each issuing point will use only the official Pocket Note Book Issue Register (Form 124) to record issues.

1.9 Access to, and the issue of pocket notebooks will be the responsibility of police officers not below the rank of Sergeant, or police staff supervisors designated by their district, department or unit head to fulfil the function.

1.10 Before issuing a replacement pocket book, the issuing officer will examine the completed pocket book before signing and dating it.

as simple as that. It is exactly what it is and how it is called. Despite modern digital technology, every cop carries one

neutral  Daryo: yes, but this a quote from some official regulations - so you need the "official" term.
