3644 Additional Information on an Intake Still Being Processed by SWI

SWI Policy and Procedures May 2015

New information may be obtained when the original intake is still being completed by SWI and has not been transmitted to the field. The intake specialist follows the procedures appropriate for the various situations as described below.

Original Intake Specialist Still Has Intake

If the same reporter calls SWI to add additional information on an intake that is still being completed by the intake specialist who took the initial call, the intake specialist receiving the additional information sends a message through the instant messaging system to the intake specialist who is documenting the original report. If the original intake specialist is available, the information is verbally provided and the original intake specialist updates the original report with the additional information.

The intake specialist who received the additional information generates an I&R Call Regarding an Existing Case. The intake specialist documents that the information was added to the appropriate Call ID number. This I&R is saved and closed.
