Asiakirjojen katoamisilmoitukset

Poliisin myöntämien asiakirjojen katoamisilmoitukset

Poliisin myöntämien asiakirjojen katoamisilmoitukset tehdään poliisin lupahallintoon. Tämä koskee esimerkiksi passia ja henkilökorttia. Muiden asiakirjojen katoamisesta ilmoitetaan joko sähköisesti tai paikan päällä poliisilaitoksella ilmoitusten vastaanottoon.

Ilmoituksen voi tehdä joko sähköisesti tai lupakansliassa täytettävällä lomakkeella. Sähköisellä rikosilmoituksella voit myös ilmoittaa kadonneesta tai anastetusta henkilökortista, passista ja ajokortista. Poliisi harkitsee annettujen tietojen perusteella kirjataanko asiassa rikosilmoitus vai muu ilmoitus. Sähköisen rikosilmoituksen tekeminen vaatii tunnistautumisen ennen lomakkeen täyttämistä. Tunnistautuminen voidaan tehdä joko pankkitunnuksilla, sirullisella henkilökortilla tai mobiilivarmenteella. Ilmoitus kirjataan tunnistautumisen jälkeen avautuvalle sähköiselle rikosilmoituslomakkeelle. Lomakkeen yhteydessä on tarkemmat ohjeet lomakkeen täyttämisestä sekä vaadittavista tiedoista. Väärän ilmoituksen tekeminen poliisille on rikos, josta on säädetty rikoslaissa rangaistus.

Firearms belonging to estates of deceased persons

After a permit holder’s death, the administrator of their estate must immediately seize all firearms and obtain permits for them within six months.

The Firearms Act stipulates that, after the death of a permit holder, the administrator of the permit holder’s estate must, without delay, take possession of all firearms, firearm components, cartridges and especially dangerous projectiles belonging to the estate. Permits for possession of firearms must be obtained within six months. Alternatively, firearms can be rendered permanently unusable or surrendered to the government, free of charge.

After the death of a firearm permit holder, the administrator of their estate should contact the police licence administration as soon as possible to settle the matter of firearm licences and permits.
