If the crime is a misdemeanor, the responding officer will conduct any required follow-up investigation and file the applicable criminal charges.
In felony cases, the report (once completed) will be reviewed by a supervisor. After the report is accepted, Records will forward the report to Investigations. An Investigations supervisor will review the report and determine which detective will receive the case.
The case may be assigned for active investigation if there are suspects, evidence, or other leads that may allow the case to be solved.
