There is no motivator bigger than fear. Humans have done a lot of progress in life simply because they were afraid of something. We owe a lot of our inventions and discoveries to fear. But despite being afraid of so many things, we also have a lot of love for the macabre. Whenever you see someone going towards the source of a strange noise in a movie, you call them an idiot. But if faced with the same situation, there is a high chance that you would do the same. As scared as we are of the unknown, we can’t deny our strange fascination with it.
There is a reason that movies and TV shows based on true crime stories do so well with the public. Some people think that it is only a trend in America but in truth, almost everyone wants to know what motivates killers and what became the tripping point in criminals’ lives. Our fascination with mystery is the reason thrillers sell, whether they are based on true stories or made up. Whether they are in the form of a book or being shown on the big screen, no one can turn their eyes away from a good mystery.
But just because we love figuring out a mystery, doesn’t mean we are all violent in nature. No matter how much we have evolved since the old times, fear will never leave us. And despite watching crimes of all kinds on the TV, none of us actually want them to become real. Our fascination with killers is not because of their crimes. We simply want to know what made them different from the rest of us. This is why when faced with actual danger, none of us will enjoy it. People don’t want to become victims, or even the perpetrators, and appear in a future documentary. Majority of us believe in the rule of law and that’s why the thought of criminals running free doesn’t scare us much because we know law enforcement will get to them sooner or later.
However, no criminal was ever caught without the help of the public. It is the duty of every citizen to report crimes whenever they witness one. Sometimes people don’t witness a crime but become the victim of it, that’s when reporting the injustice becomes more important and should be done as soon as possible. It is the moral duty of all of us to help the law enforcement catch criminals.
Many people visit Spain every year for work or for holidays. The country welcomes all kinds of tourists with open arms. But unfortunately, some of them end up not having a good time in the country. There is nothing worse than enjoying a vacation and realizing that someone stole your purse or damaged your property. Crimes cannot be eliminated from the world completely not matter how hard people try and that’s why it is also a reality in Spain.
But once your vacation or business trip is ruined by a thief, what can you do about it? If you had to go back to the UK, you will not be able to file a report in person. However, our world today has wonderful means of communication, which means you can find a solution to your problem with the right help.
Reporting a Crime in Spain from the UK, How Do We Do That?
Although there are a few crimes that have to be reported in person, the rest can easily be reported online or via a telephone call. But when you are back in the UK and you don’t know any Spanish to begin with, you might think your chances of bringing a criminal to justice are slim. But language barriers stopped being a problem when translation and interpretation became common. Telephone interpretation has resolved a lot of language related issues for businesses, healthcare industries, and courts.
You can take help from a good translator for translating any forms if you are reporting the crime online. You will be able to fill the form accurately and become closer to getting justice.
Spain is a country that values its tourists highly. They work hard to resolve criminal cases in their country but when a tourist gets attacked, their resolve to solve the case gets stronger. It may feel like a nuisance coming forward to report a crime, especially if your loss wasn’t too great. But whether you are in your own country or in a foreign place, it is up to you to inform the authorities of criminal activities so they can bring the culprits to justice.
If you plan on reporting the theft or burglary via telephone, there is also a telephone number that was created for English speakers. However, it is not free and is only available from 9AM to 9PM. This telephone is very helpful for English speakers who can’t find a translator to help them with the online forms. They will be able to report their case via telephone in English and won’t miss any details in their language. The telephone line has been proven useful in solving different cases. If you witnessed a crime in Spain then it is your duty now to make sure the phone line stays useful and effective. You can help the local law enforcement round up criminals who prey on easy targets and ruin the reputation of their country in the process.
