Re: Does a Police Officer Have the Right to Refuse to Amend a Police Report
They can not CHANGE the original report, but they can add to (amend) the report by way of a supplement. You can always write your own statement, go to the department, and ask that it be included in the report. They may do it, they may not. There is no law that says they must add it, nor is there a law that compels them to amend a report. They may do so if they want.
At this point, however, unless you are being charged with a crime it may be a moot point as the report has likely been requested and mailed to the insurance companies. You can still tell your insurance company your side of the story if it gets to insurance claims.
