How to file a police report? Statement on the commission of a criminal offense

Reading time: 3 min.

Has a crime been committed against you or your loved ones? Do you want to protect your own interests in court? The first step that you should definitely take is to contact the law enforcement agencies for help with the appropriate application. At the same time, it is very important to correctly draw up a statement about the commission of a criminal offense and submit it. It is this stage that affects the promptness of the initiation of the investigation and its effectiveness, the exposure of the guilty and their further prosecution. The specialists of "PRIKHODKO & PARTNERS" will help you to draw up and submit a statement about the commission of a criminal offense to the police.

We protect the interests of witnesses and victims. The corresponding services are provided by us "on a turnkey basis".

It is worth taking a serious approach to this case, because the law enforcement authorities, in the case of self-submission of the application, may refuse to register the case in the Unified Register of Pre-Trial Investigations.

Peculiarities of filing a statement about the commission of a criminal offense

The filing of a statement about the commission of a criminal offense must take place at the same time as the police officers arrive. The lawyers of our law firm will help you with this.

Expediency in drawing up and submitting the application will help to avoid many problems.

  • First, not in all cases, police representatives accept statements from witnesses or victims. They may have enough explanations. At the same time, the explanation is not a reason for registering a report of the commission of a crime in the EDPR.
  • Secondly, not everyone is familiar with the intricacies of legal terminology. For example, the victim may sign explanations prepared by police representatives, which will not correspond to objective realities. Ultimately, this can lead to the fact that you will become a suspect from the victim category.
  • Thirdly, incorrect filing of the application can lead to lengthy court proceedings. Thus, it is very important to contact professionals.

The structure of the statement about the crime

The application for the commission of a criminal offense is made in an arbitrary form. Current Ukrainian legislation does not define the content and form of a crime statement.

Among the information that is most often indicated in the application:

  • Information about the applicant (surname, first name, patronymic, place of residence, telephone, etc.).
  • Address of the Police Department to which the application is submitted.
  • Description of the circumstances of the committed crime.
  • A description of the damage caused by the actual crime.

These are just the main ingredients. It is also worth adding copies of existing documents that can confirm the circumstances of the crime (if any) and its consequences.

After the application is prepared and submitted, specialists of "PRIKHODKO & PARTNERS" will check that the information about the criminal offense is entered in the Unified Register of Pretrial Investigations.

Submitting a statement to the police is a very important stage for starting an investigation. "PRIKHODKO & PARTNERS" lawyers provide effective protection of the rights of witnesses and victims.
