We can't have people reporting people for things willy nilly (not saying you did this OP)and expecting police to just do something about it. There are a couple of reasons for this;
- people who are reporting others need to be accountable, this ensures that their reports are genuine and not vengeful
- people are innocent until proven guilty and have a right to be proven guilty rather than an assumption of guilt

I had the perfect reply but the internet are it but basically smoking in a car with children is a form of abuse. It may not be violent in nature but it is still dangerous. But I think the moral of the story is don't report anything to the police unless you are prepared to stand face to face with the criminal and point your finger at them because there is no such thing as being able to do the right thing and remain anonymous for your own safety these days.

I haven't read any other posts, but I think the key here is that you need to be prepared to go to court to give evidence. I don't think it's inevitable. I dobbed in a hoon last year and got the same response. I said 'yeah, no problem' and they never got back to me.
BTW, I think it's wonderful that you dobbed him in. Even if it doesn't go further than a warning/fine for the douche, hopefully he'll think twice before lighting up in front of little ones again.

Why don't you do a statement up and see what happens? You can't just 'tell' the cops and think that's where your job as a conscientious citizen ends... The cops can't do anything based on someone who calls up.Sign the statement and give the poor kid a chance..
