Hypothetical questions:

* Can a Police Report "Filed" (regarding the theft of an ATM card and it's use) ever be removed or does it *live* forever in the database?

* Is it's existence, or archive, capable of casting a bad light on the on the person that filed it (for poor moral conduct)?

* Can it be used against the person that filed it, to place him in a bad light in the future, say with an CCW app later with the same city/county or LEA?

Thanks in advance...

-The report will always be "in the system" somewhere.

-Yes.

-Yes.

So did you "lose" your ATM card at a brothel after maxing out the card, or what?;)

Hypothetically speaking for this discussion only, that might be sort of close... :eek: Hypothetically speaking of course...

In the days of paper, seven years active storage of reports then off to archive storage. Contact cards would live in the department files essentially forever.

With modern records management technology, stuff is essentially available forever in electronic form.

Hypothetically speaking, it would depend a great deal on whether the OP was victim or suspect, at the highest level, and whether or not he was arrested if the suspect. Or, again hypothetically, if the report was false. If the hypothetical theft took place at a known house of ill fame, it may or may not tweak the whiskers of an investigator doing a CCW app.

Assuming for the sake of the discussion that the hypothetical report exists within the same county or city as which the CCW application is going to be filed, then the hypothetical person may want to have a reasonable explanation handy concerning the straight of the matter, but unless there was some criminal culpability on the part of that hypothetical person, it may be a lot of worry over nothing.

(not arrested, never a suspect, not a fraudulent filing) Or, again hypothetically, if the report was false (Hypothetically speaking, no). If the hypothetical theft took place at a known house of ill fame, it may or may not tweak the whiskers of an investigator doing a CCW app. (Hypothetically speaking, at residence)

Thanks everyone (esp BigDog) for your input in this Hypothetical situational discusion...

a lot of the current data base is now set on a 99 year purge. Guess that beats the previous 10 year paper shredding.
