"Reporting Person" in my neck of the woods, but it's more politically correct to say "caller"

You may also hear "RO" which stands for Registered Owner, usually in reference to a vehicle. Dont get this confused with "RP"

Tip for future reference:

Think of and remember the State you live in/monitor...then look for that states name below in the long list of forums....post your local query in the correct state forum...that way you get an accurate response because what may mean one thing in one area/state may mean sometime totally different in the next state over....maybe one day people will understand this and start posting questions in the correct forums...or maybe I can only dream...
