We rely on police officers to maintain peace in our neighborhoods and to ensure that the rule of law is enforced. Beyond that, we also need them to record important information via police reports. However, there are also times when the need to amend a police report arises.
That is understandable. We all make mistakes, and there is no reason why police officers would be the exception.
Still, an error in a police report is not like a mistake in any other document. A single error can influence the initial impression of a case and have lasting consequences.
