Can I file a police report to have an incident on record, without having charges brought against someone?

Once a report is filed, it is up to law enforcement how it will be handled. Some agencies may allow you to agree not to prosecute, others won’t. My advice is to call your local department and ask generally how a report will be handled and whether you have an option to report but not prosecute. You can make the best decision for you and your family from that point forward.
