Web Site Link: http://www.search.org/programs/info/publications

A Field Interview Report (FIR) is record of a field officer’s stop of an individual or vehicle. The officer uses the FIR to gather information about an individual, who is acting suspiciously, may have had the potential of committing a crime or is being checked while passing through a jurisdiction’s boundary. Information is captured about the event, to record the individual, vehicle, location and field officer related to the FIR for the purpose of recording the event for possible future investigations and identification. At the time of the event, no assumption of guilt of the individual or probable cause has been established by the field officer, and no other reportable action was taken by the officer. The field officer is only capturing the event for purpose of recording the interview with the individual.
