National Sex Assault Hotline:
A report may not remain “information only” or “partial” if a reporter provides information about an incident that meets the standard of a mandatory law enforcement response such as certain incidents of domestic violence, child sexual assault or immediate threat to safety.
Yes. If a reporter chooses to provide the name of another person, often a support person or advocate, in their report they can provide permission to law enforcement for them to contact that person. For example, the YHOP online reporting form has multiple options for future contact.
Once law enforcement receives information it should be documented as it was it received. Effort should be made to respect the intention of the original report.
Information only reports may include any information the reporter is able to share. There are no requirements about the minimum amount of information.
