False Reports

Why do people make false reports?

People can be tempted to make false reports to the police for a number of reasons. It may be to make up financial loss, for insurance purposes, to avoid other criminal offences or even to avoid getting into trouble with their family or loved ones.

What could happen to people making false reports?

Making a false report could lead to a fine, a conviction for wasting police time or even a prison sentence for the more serious offence of perverting the course of justice.  The offence carries a maximum penalty of six months imprisonment.

Less serious cases may result in a fine of £80 for people aged 16 or over and £40 for under people under 16 years old.

One thought on “False Reports

  1. There may be other possible reason why someone could make a false report – to feel connected to someone/something, to bring attention to the self fir reasons we don’t understand. It could be a cry for help or for self punishment. It could also be because the person suffered some sort of abuse or trauma or some kind of dysfunction in their younger years.
    Could be so many other reasons… 🙂
