    Default make a police report

    I know it is correct to say 'lodge a police report'. Is it correct to say 'make a police report'?

    Many thanks.

    You can lodge a claim / an appeal / a deed or a complaint in terms of law as a topic.

    In AmE, you would say "make a police report" or "file a police report," not "lodge a police report."
