Duty to report.

When the ombudsman or the ombudsman's staff has reasonable cause to believe that any person has acted in a manner warranting criminal or disciplinary proceedings, he or she shall report the matter, or cause a report to be made, to the appropriate authorities. Reasonable cause means that the ombudsman or the ombudsman's staff has direct knowledge of the action warranting criminal or disciplinary proceedings or has determined through an investigation that the allegations or information provided by another person relating to such actions are credible.
