You phone up a garda station to report a crime. Obviously you know that how the gardaí respond depends on the seriousness of the offence.

But you trust that, at the very least - even if the station is particularly busy when you called - the offence will be recorded.

You - as a victim of crime - can expect to get a follow-up call from the investigating Garda. Right? Wrong.
