Turvatarkastajaksi hyväksyminen

Poliisin hyväksymät ja tehtävään koulutetut henkilöt voivat suorittaa turvatarkastuksia.

Poliisin hyväksymiä ja turvatarkastuskoulutuksen suorittaneita turvatarkastajia voi olla poliisilaitoksissa ja muissa poliisin toimitiloissa, Rajavartiolaitoksen toimitiloissa tai alueella, tuomioistuimissa, satamissa tai Maahanmuuttoviraston tiloissa. Edellä mainituissa toimitiloissa ja alueilla voidaan järjestää turvatarkastuksia turvallisuudesta huolehtimiseksi, järjestyksen turvaamiseksi ja omaisuuden suojelemiseksi. Turvatarkastajaksi hyväksyminen on voimassa toistaiseksi, mutta kuitenkin enintään niin pitkäksi ajaksi kuin hyväksytty toimii ilmoitetussa turvatarkastustehtävässä. Edellä tarkoitetut turvatarkastajat eivät ole oikeutettuja suorittamaan tarkastuksia kotirauhan piiriin kuuluvissa tiloissa.

Turvatarkastajaksi hyväksymistä voi hakea turvatarkastuksen suorittamispaikan sijaintipaikkakunnan poliisilta henkilö itse, työnantaja tai turvatarkastuspaikan haltija tai omistaja. Hakemukseen tulee liittää turvatarkastuspaikasta riippuen hyväksyttäväksi esitettävien henkilöiden koulutustietoja ja muita turvatarkastustehtävään liittyviä selvityksiä. Poliisilaitos harkitsee tapauskohtaisesti selvitystarpeet. Lisätietoja turvatarkastajaksi hyväksymisestä ja turvatarkastajaksi hyväksymisen muuttamisesta saat poliisin verkkosivuilta.

Aseen esittäminen

Ase esitetään poliisille pääsääntöisesti omistajanvaihdoksen tai luvan muuttamisen yhteydessä. Poliisi voi myös pyytää aseen esittämistä muusta syystä

Ase esitetään viemällä se poliisiasemalle joko poliisilaitoksen ilmoittamina päivinä tai ajanvarauksen perusteella. Esittämisen tarkoituksena on varmistua siitä, että kun ase rekisteröidään uudelle omistajalle tai olemassa olevaan lupaan tehdään muutoksia, rekisteriin päätyy varmasti oikeat tiedot. Esimerkiksi aseen numeroissa on usein virheitä. Poliisi voi myös pyytää aseen esittämistä, jos epäillään, että rekisterissä on virheellistä tietoa.

Poliisilaitos voi edellyttää esittämisajan varaamista ajanvarausjärjestelmässä. On myös mahdollista, että poliisilaitoksilla on ennalta määritellyt aseen esittämisajat, jolloin aseen voi viedä tarkastettavaksi poliisiasemalle ilman ennakkovarausta. Poliisilaitokset ilmoittavat omasta menettelystään verkkosivuillaan. Jos ase halutaan esittää muina kuin ennalta ilmoitettuina aikoina, siitä pitää aina sopia poliisilaitoksen kanssa erikseen. Aseen esittämisen yhteydessä mukana on oltava aseen hankkimiseen tai valmistamiseen oikeuttava lupa (aselupa, johon on liitetty joko hankkimis- tai valmistamisoikeus). Asetarkastaja tarkistaa, että hankittu tai valmistettu ase vastaa lupaa ja kirjaa aseen yksilöintitiedot poliisin järjestelmään. Vasta kun ase on esitetty, sen hallussapitoon oikeuttava lupatodistus voidaan antaa.
