No, it is not "against the law". It could be against departmental policies but there are no specific laws stating how a police report must be written.
However, you are certainly allowed to request that the report be corrected and you can send the department a letter outlining the corrections you are requesting and also asking that they keep the letter with the report so that it accurately reflects everything.
If your question has been answered then I'd offer my best wishes to you and ask that you please not forget to leave a Positive Rating so I receive credit for my work. Of course, please feel free to ask any follow up questions in this thread. I want to be sure that all of your questions are answered.
