Police reports which do not require an immediate police response may be filed online as from 1 April.

In a statement on Sunday, the Police explained that the measure was part of its contingency plan to limit public exposure of both the public and the officers. Some procedures have been modified and the police will be accepting and taking certain reports remotely; either over the phone on +356 2294 0000, online, through the 112mt App or via email on pulizija@gov.mt.

Filing of remote police reports is intended for offences that do not require an immediate police response, the police said.

When filing a report remotely, one must confirm the following:

  • The complainant’s identity and contact number should the police require to get in touch
  • The report case is not an emergency
  • Filing a false police report is a crime punishable by imprisonment
  • The Malta Police Force will review the case and contact the complainant if further information is needed
  • Follow up may be done via email or phone
