filing an anonymous police report

Post by Vesi » Thu Dec 31, 2020 3:29 pm

Do you know if it's possible to file a police report anonymously?

A friend filed a report about someone stalking her and her home information was sent to the stalker in an official notification. So I am wondering if there is an anonymous way.

This is how the law works! The Police has to inform the defendant.

"Dear Mr. Stalker, you are now informed that Ms. Shiela Parker lives at Linnankatu 9, 00160 Helsinki, Finland. You cannot be within 500m of this address or you can be arrested."

Same thing if the stalker person actually gets arrested for being near that address and the case goes to trial, she will have to go to court. He can then say, oh I was in the area buying groceries because my favorite grocery store happens to be there. The law doesn't just randomly prosecute people on anonymous complaints and tips. There has to be real plaintiff and a defendant with a real name and address.
