The police will investigate your complaint to determine if there is sufficient evidence to make an arrest. This includes taking statements from you, any witnesses, and the accused if he or she wishes to make a statement. Every person has a constitutional right to refuse to make any statement to the police that might incriminate him or her. The police will also collect any physical evidence found at the scene of the crime. This may result in the police making an immediate arrest or, if the police are not sure whether or not there is sufficient evidence to make an arrest, they will contact the State's Attorney's Office to seek a legal opinion.
