The general, at the end of the conversation says to another guy: But check back in with me tonight.
Does it mean: Don't forget to come to me/call me etc.?
OK, the whole sentence looked more or less like this.
Two guy were talking (police officer investigating a certain case and a general trying to help him).
At the end of their conversation the general said: Regular reports, usual channels. But check back in with me tonight. If you need support, don't hesitate. We'll do what we can.
I understand it means: Report to me regularly, use the same channels (probably by phone) and ... check back in with me tonight.
Do you think it still means "report back to me"? That would be twice the same thing, I guess.
So does it mean he wanted him (the officer) to come and meet with him (general) again tonight?
To sum it up: Report to me regulary using the same channels (I think he's talking about phoning) and meet with me tonight.
Do you agree?
