Law enforcement agencies—Reporting responsibilities.

(1) If the disposition of criminal charges is made by the arresting agency, as where the individual is released without charge, the arresting agency shall fill in and complete the disposition report and submit same to the section. If the disposition is known at the time the arrest record or fingerprint card is submitted to the section, this information should be noted thereon. In this case, it will be unnecessary to forward a disposition report.
(2) In all cases where the arresting agency does not make the final disposition, it shall initiate the preparation of a disposition report by recording the name of the individual arrested, the charges on which he was arrested, the name of the contributor of the arrest or fingerprint record, the process control number, the arrest number and any other information that may identify the individual. At this stage the disposition of charges will be left blank, but the agency will note the action that it has taken, e.g., referred to the prosecutor. The partially completed disposition report must then be included as part of the individual's case file and must be forwarded with other information concerning the charges against the individual to the prosecutor or other agency to which the arresting agency forwards the case.
