How to contact Riga police about robbery

Several weeks ago my friend had her gold necklace yanked from her neck while looking at craft stalls in the Old Town of Riga in day time.

Back in England we claimed on insurance but we now have to contact the Riga police to obtain a report from them about what they did to help (they spoke to stall holder - not us - and drove off to chase thief).

Can someone please supply the correct name and address to write to or an email address?

Will writing in English be acceptable?

Thank you for any help.

Thank you very much Fonsanta.

That is really helpful and you replied so quickly. It took the UK embassy 4 weeks to give us a very confusing reply.

I should have asked here first!!

Thank you again

Per the Riga Latvia tourism office website, the best way to initiate the contact is to call the Latvian Tourism Development hotline and explain to them what you need.

Then allow them to initiate the contact with the police.

The number is:

Tourist - Visitor Problem Hotline

24 hours in English -- +371-2-203-3000

They do speak English as I talked with them 2 weeks ago.

My ten year experience in Riga with the police is that they will NOT answer your email in any language and especially in English without a "push"from some authority like the Tourism Development Agency.
