5.00.110     WRITTEN ARREST REPORTS

 

A written report is required for all arrests.

 

Arrest reports will be completed and turned in to the officer's supervisor prior to leaving work at the end of a duty shift.  Each officer is to submit arrest reports in a timely manner during the shift to eliminate any potential backlog at the end of the shift.  Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis with the approval of the shift supervisor.

 

Arrest reports will be reviewed by the shift supervisor to ensure that the report and all supplementary arrest documents (e.g., fingerprint cards) are properly completed.
