The usual procedure for the officer(s) to respond to the complaint/call, take down pertinent information (witness statements, etc.) and file the report. Street officers are first responders, once they file their report the information is forwarded to the detectives in charge of such crimes for further action (if any), then if warranted to the prosecutor's office and so on.
