The first place to complain about any erroneous report would be the agency that employs the officer. You can also tell your side to the tale to the university and it seems you have as you indicated that you shoul dbe exonerated there. That is what due process is about.
If you feel you have suffered some sort of damage and can affix a dollar value to that damage, then you are free to consult an attorney about a lawsuit. I don't see it, but, as I said, there may be some detail I am missing in your telling.
That's easy to prevent - stay away from people with alcohol until you are 21.Although I am slowly getting out of the claims, the incident report still will remain in my file, which means any future interaction with the police or being written up for anything even remotely related to alcohol could jeopardize my status in the school.
They do not "rescind" reports. A report may be appended, but it is not going to be rescinded. If the agency found some inaccuracy they can certainly supplement the report, but they are not going to destroy it or even amend the original report after it has been distributed ... at least, they shouldn't - for a host of reasons.My original plan was hopefully I could file some sort of report with the police department and hope to get the statement/report rescinded.
Such a complaint would almost certainly be investigated, but from what you have written there appears to be no violation of law or policy here ... assuming, of course, the agency does not have some weird policy preventing contacts in this sort of situation.My other hope was that the claim of the unconstitutional/illegal search would give the department reason to actually care and pursue the complaint--I think we all know that cops watch over cops, and a petty complaint like this really won't get really far.
I suspect there is a process at the university where you can have this removed either after a certain time period has passed, or, due to no proof that you were directly in possession or inebriated. That would be a university process, however.But, when it comes to my academic record (and this report could be the difference between me being able to remain in some of my honors programs), I really want to get this taken care of and removed from my record.
