Hi and thank you for your question!
The Police of Finland starts its pre-trial investigation (esitutkinta) when there are grounds to suspect that an crime has been committed. Usually the police get their first information about a crime when someone reports the crime. However, the police can also conduct a pre-trial investigation without any report being made. For example if a police sees two men fighting each other on a street, he can arrest them and start a pre-trial investigation immediately. The reason why the police know about a crime does not matter if they have a reason to suspect that a crime has happened. Therefore, the police will investigate a crime even though they found out about it because of a report of a different crime, which turned out to be a calumny. The relevant rules concerning pre-trial investigations are in the Pre-Trial Investigation Act (esitutkintalaki).

Huomaathan, että lainsäädäntö on saattanut joiltain osin muuttua.
