Helsinki Main Police Station, licence services

To minimise the risk of infection, please only visit a police station if absolutely necessary.
Due to the coronavirus situation, we have to limit the number of customers in the waiting areas. Helsinki Main Police Station is situated in two police buildings in Pasila. The unit duty desk in police building 1 receives reports of an offence and deals with lost property matters. Police building 2 serves in passport, identity card and firearm matters. See below for our services and opening hours.

In emergencies, always dial 112.

Please use our online services and book a service time in advance, whenever possible. Read the instructions first before making an application for a passport, personal ID card or other permit or filing a Police report.

If a case is underway and pending, the responses are given by the Police department handing the case. For example, to order copies of records of investigation or criminal reports, please contact the Police department or station directly. Please check the contact details of the department or station in question.

The cost for a call to the Police is

  • the local network charge (pvm) if you call using a landline number
  • cellular phone charge (mpm) if you use a mobile phone
  • international call charge if you call from abroad.

You will pay for the call in line with your operator tariff. Waiting time is also paid for.
