Police Officer

Can some one please explain tome why Police Officer should not assume?

For example when a police Office is told of a dispute between two parties why should they not assume what they are hearing is not the truth.

The only reason I could figure out is based on the information could be prejudice against one party or the other. any other example
why they should not assume anything?

  1. Ray, basically, law is based on fact.Were law not based on fact, then we would not have "justice".
    Assumption is based on a number of things ( suspicion, guess work, prejudice) that may not be fact. Policemen are people and are just as likely to be influenced by emotion as everyone else is. Therefore, they must be doubly conscious of the difference between fact and assumption.
