    • Upon review, based upon your chosen preference, you will be contacted by phone or by scheduled face to face video conferencing and an official case number will be issued.
    • Your report will automatically be assigned a Temporary Report Number. This is NOT an official PBSO report number.
    • Reports are rejected that do not meet online reporting requirements. You will receive email notification with a reason for the rejection.
