Our Story

Report Writers was founded by Louise Henare to provide comprehensive insight into offending in support of the Criminal Justice system. The business is committed to societal improvement, we support this by investing into organisations who work with both those at-risk and the victims of crime. By investing in organisations actively supporting our community, we effectively work against the need for our own services. 

In essence, Report Writers are working towards positive social investment and education.
