Four service points remain closed - Police
Four service points remain closed
The Eastern Uusimaa Police Department closed its four service points in October 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Based on a decision made now, the shutdown of the policing and permit services at the Nurmijärvi and Loviisa stations as well as the permit services at the Mäntsälä and Kerava police service points continue until 29 August 2021.
The shutdown of the service points continues in two separate sets. In April and May, the doors remain closed to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. From June to August, these service points have traditionally had a summer break due to the summer holidays of the staff, and this will also be the case this year.
As the pandemic starts to cede, the coming summer is expected to be busy as far as service demand is concerned.
“To be able to provide the clients with the best possible service from an overall perspective, we must close smaller service points and concentrate the staff in large service points”, Superintendent Markku Koskimäki, head of the Permit Service Sector explains.
Booking of appointments and online contacts recommended
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we recommend that the permit service client book an appointment. To book an appointment, please go to the Police digital services or call the nation-wide advice phone service at 0295 41 9 800.
Hyvinkää, Järvenpää and Porvoo still have services based on the order of arrival of clients in person. Due to the gathering restrictions in Uusimaa, the Vantaa permit service point only receives clients with an appointment. Clients who come to the Police to withdraw a returned driving permit, a completed document or temporary ID card constitute an exception.
We also recommend to file a report of a crime through the digital Police service whenever possible. Filing a crime report in person will be possible at the Hyvinkää, Järvenpää and Porvoo Police stations and at the Vantaa Main Police Station at Rahtitie. We server the crime report clients following the order of their arrival.
Please remember that in our premises, we apply limits to the number of people present at each given moment. Please take this into consideration. Please use the mask and take care of hand hygiene whenever at the Police premises.
