How do I file charges against somebody?

Filing of charges against a person is the responsibility of the State's Attorney. Officers will respond to your issue and if warranted they will write a report and forward it to the State's Attorney for review for possible charges. If probable cause for an arrest exists from the investigation of the scene, the officer can arrest a suspect, take them to jail, and write the report. Again, the ultimate responsibility for filing official charges rests with the State's Attorney's Office.
