What is a Domestic Incident Report?

A Domestic Incident Report is a form that the New York State police use to record information about a domestic incident. The report contains information about the parties involved and the date, time, and place of the incident. Also included in the report are the police officers’ observations and a summary of the incident. There is also a space in the form for the victim to write a brief statement about the incident. The DIR is a multi-part form, allowing both the police officers and the victim to retain a copy. If the incident is a serious domestic violence felony, police are required to make an arrest.
