An OB is a register maintained by the National Police Service (NPS) in various police stations in which every significant occurrence or incident being reported to the station is recorded.

Although the NPS in August 2020 launched the digitalization of police records, such cases of the manual OBs disappearing in police stations are not uncommon.
