Next step after police report?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

When someone files a police report, but the police officer finds that it does not include any criminal activity, does the police officer then have the authority to decide that it should not be sent to the prosecutor for further review?

 

I have read that the police can only give a "recommendation" on whether the case should be prosecuted, but elsewhere I have read that complaints are only sent to the prosecutor if the police has "approved" the actual complaint.

 

So my question: Are all police reports/complaints sent on to the prosecutor for further review? Does anybody know what the process here is?

 

Would be happy about any input!

 

Thank you!

Bee

What a farce of a comment just more naive Thai cop negativity.

 

For the OP No not all reports are sent.

If it was filed as an incident report or miscellaneous such as lost property, they with not send it for prosecution.

And yes, if they determine no crime occurred or it lacks criminal elements (such as a mutual combat argument or fight) they will not send it for prosecution.

If you have more details it may help but if you were told "no crime" it will be kept on file and not sent for prosecution.

Sorry, but you do not know what you are talking about.  There is a Police procedure that allows you to pay to start an investigation. My wife has used it 3 times. It takes the place of civil proceedings in a UK court for example.  Get your facts right before you start to throw insults at people,   Its not helpful to others.

No, you are wrong.

You seem to know little about this.

In this case an investigation was started and determined to not involve criminal elements or activity.

Stop spreading false information that anytime you pay the police they will conduct a further investigation based on nothing. That is a flat out untrue and false....

The Police can determine that your complaint is a "no crime" complaint and not forward it to the prosecutor. If they determine the crime is borderline, they tend to bury it. They do this as there is a tremendous amount of investigation and paperwork that needs to be done prior to the complaint going to the prosecutor. 

If you feel wronged, you can insist they send it to the prosecutor who will determine if a crime has been committed.

Even if the prosecutor determines a crime has been committed. he/she can choose not to pursue it.

Depends whether you pay him or not.  That is a  serious comment, not a joke.  Sometimes, to get them moving on an investigation,  you have to pay an administration fee. 

 

 

You are 100% spot on.

Siam Legal says here that you are speaking through a blowhole usually hidden in polite company.

 

So does common sense. I have to be able to afford an "administration fee" for the police to do their job - really? Now, when I am a party in a court matter and need legal representation, that's a different scenario.

and admit that you wink wink meant a bribe and not an official fee then I shall retract the jackass slur. But you might then be liable for maligning the BB, not that they do not include the occasional bad apple on the take.
