If an officer has not personally witnessed the infraction, you may be asked to provide a formal statement to be able to proceed with charges. Through this process, you will be asked if you are willing to testify in court as to what you witnessed. If there is insufficient evidence, we will not be able to proceed with charges.
At the conclusion of an investigation, an officer will contact you to let you know the outcome of the complaint unless you have previously indicated you did not wish to receive any follow-up.
