Official California State Domestic Abuse Report Forms
In 2004 two new official forms were devised by the Office of Emergency Services (OES) to report domestic abuse to law enforcement. In 2009 these forms were renamed (but the content is the same) when the OES became the California Emergency Management Agency (CalEMA).
- Single page, lists state law required data with small size empty space to detail injuries (you can attach additional pages, such as a Body Map).
- It is helpful to describe location, depth, direction, character and appearance of each injury.
- Other details, such as general demeanor, areas of tenderness, disheveled appearance, broken fingernails or jewelry, and torn clothing are also useful.
- Eight page extensive forensic report with detailed body maps and evidence collection documentation.
