BALER, Aurora-Police Regional Office 3 under the headship of PCSUPT RAUL D PETRASANTA advises the public to always secure a copy of their IRF or the Incident Report Form after reporting a crime incident to all Police Stations. Such directive is given by the PNP-PIO National Headquarters.
IRF is an accountable form filled out by a complainant which contains data provided by the Desk Officer pertaining to the complainant, victim or suspect and including the narrative details of the incident. It becomes the official document once it is signed by the investigators and the reporting person in which the information contained will be immediately recorded in the police blotter, uploaded to the Crime Incident Reporting System (CIRS) database, and becomes the first document included in the case folder. The use of IRF is implemented in all police stations and offices with investigative functions.
On the other hand, CIRS is an electronic database system that facilitates crime documentation and systematic data storage and retrieval. The system presents a quick, fast and reliable transmission of crime information from lower police units and offices of the PNP to the National Headquarters.
In case of crime incidents which was reported to the police but referred back to the barangay, the report must clearly indicate whether the case is amicable settled, under investigation or referred back to the police with a certification to file action. (PRO3 PIO)
