What can I expect after I file a report?

You can expect the following process to happen after you file a report:

  1. Once your report is filed, a copy of the report will be reviewed by a Watch Commander within 24 and 48 hours of submission.
  2. The Watch Commander will either approve the report or request additional information from you. 
  3. You will receive an email notification regarding the status of your report. 
  4. If the Watch Commander requests additional information, you will file a supplemental report. Your report will not be approved until any additional information requested is provided.
  5. Once your report is approved, you will receive an email with information on how to print a copy of your final report for your records. These copies can also be used to file with your insurance company, bank, courts, etc.
