  • Correct license plate and vehicle description
  • Correct location of the incident and time it took place
  • Description of the driver

The complainant MUST be willing to:

  • Provide a statement, preferably handwritten or typed
  • Be prepared to attend court

 

Ultimately, the decision to pursue charges is at the discretion of the officer after full consideration of the facts.
