How do police officers tell if a report is true or false?

For example, let's say a woman accuses a man of raping her when the man didn't actually rape her. How would the police officers tell if this was a true report or a false report?

Now, let's say that a man files a report and says that a woman beat him up in public and the woman actually did beat him up in public. How would the police officers tell if this report was true or false?

Also, can people get arrested for making false claims and false reports to the police?

They look for evidence, duh.

The police don't tell if it's true or not when it comes to such a crime. It then becomes the issue of forensics, as the police are just there to make sure that there is no clear and present danger.


Now, let's say that a man files a report and says that a woman beat him up in public and the woman actually did beat him up in public. How would the police officers tell if this report was true or false?

Evidence.

Yes, they most definitely can. Just ringing the fire alarm at a school can be a $5,000 fine.

They wouldn't, that's up to the courts to decide.

There are things called evidence and facts. Each case is different. There are so many factors it is hard to know where to start, including indicators like the demeanor of those involved. Take for example, a member of a debate site who appears to be consistently insinuating in forums, opinions, and polls that men are regularly charged without merit for crimes against women, while clearly guilty women regularly get a pass. It's not proof, but it is an indicator for anyone searching for an individual who has pissed in his Cheerios and gotten caught, and can't accept the blame he deserves. Again, it's not proof, but it is a lead which can be followed toward evidence. It works kind of like that.
