Complaints must be filed at the Criminal Investigation Team by appointment
WILLEMSTAD - Head of the Criminal Investigation Team Curaçao announces that as of today no complaints can be filed without an appointment. Anyone who presents a (written) complaint is requested to call the number 465-0402 to make an appointment and the complaint will be filed by a detective.
Anyone can report a crime. The basic principle is that anyone filing a complaint should do this personally. The reason for this is that the investigating officer may need to ask questions if necessary, get more facts and details or other circumstances that could help in the investigation.
Those that need to file a complaint or report a crime should, however, take into account the fact that this can take several hours.
