Since the end of October 2013, private individuals and companies from the cantons of Zug, Zurich, Bern, Friborg, Schaffhausen and St. Gallen have been able to submit reports online around the clock without having to go to a police station in person. The platform reduces the administrative effort, which creates capacities for the core tasks of the police. The following advertisements and forms can currently be processed online:

  • Report of theft of a moped or bicycle
  • Report a lost license plate
  • Display of property damage including spraying
  • Application form for a weapon acquisition license
  • Contract form for the transfer of a weapon

To date, no concrete signs of improper use of the platform have been found in the police forces involved.

The virtual police post is being expanded step by step and will one day be available to the entire Swiss population. The number of offenses to be reported or the number of forms is to be increased in the future.

You can find more information online at www.suisse-epolice.ch.
