How to report a crime
The province of Málaga has recently launched a new system for foreign tourists to report a crime to the police. We have provided details here for your information.
The National Police now provide a ‘Servicio de Atención al Turista Extranjero’ (SATE) for visitors. This service will also help you if you need to cancel credit cards. SATE´s headquarters is in Malaga, but all National Police Stations have specialized staff available to help. This service is available from Monday to Friday from 09.00 – 21.00.
If you need to report a crime, Tel. +34 902 102 112 (You can do this in several languages)
Provide details of the incident and they will give you a provisional police report number. You will then need to go to the nearest National Police Station (Avenida Arias de Velasco 25 in Marbella) within 48 hours of your phone call and tell them the provisional police report number you have been given. The documents will be available for you to sign and this should reduce the amount of waiting time.
