Lost property

The police provides a lost and found service.

The owner must be notified of found lost items or they must be returned to the police as soon as possible. Typical items returned to the police include mobile phones, keys and bicycles found outside (e.g. on the streets or in parks). Lost items found in public transport, train stations, bus stations or other similar places of transportation or business premises, offices, place of work, educational institutions, hospitals, theatres, sports halls or similar premises should be returned to the staff or lost and found of the premise in question. These are called property found in a public place.

The owner must be notified of found lost items or they must be returned to the police as soon as possible. Items whose acquisition or possession is prohibited or requires a permit from the authorities, e.g. drugs, illegal alcohol and firearms, must be delivered to the police immediately. If you cannot transport the discovered lost items without danger or difficulty, it is enough to notify the police of the discovery. The police will give the finder a receipt for discovered items. You can also return the item to a citizen service point that has agreed with the police to accept lost items or notify this kind of a service point.

Report of criminal wrongdoing

A person who is a victim of an offence should file a report of criminal wrongdoing with the police as soon as possible.

In order to start the investigation the police needs, as soon as possible, a specific description of what, where, and when has happened and who are involved. The persons involved are the complainant and the suspect/suspects. The police shall enter the information regarding the report of criminal wrongdoing in the investigation and administrative assistance system of the police information system.

The report of criminal wrongdoing can be filed at the police station or electronically on the website of the police. The report should include, as accurately as possible, a description of what has happened and where and when as well as the persons involved (the complainant, possible suspect and witnesses). It is important to describe in detail the looks of the victim and the suspect. Also the contact information (telephone and e-mail) of the person filing the report must be filled in Information necessary for filing a report of criminal wrongdoing: - description of what has happened and how - exact time and place of the events - name of the suspect, if known - identifying characteristics of the suspect (age, hight, body, specific facial characteristics, colour of the eyes, teeth, speech, hands, moving, clothes) - in which direction the suspect fled and how - if the wrongdoer used a vehicle, the registration number and other characteristics of the vehicle (mark, colour, model) - dangerousness of the wrongdoer (weapons, state of mind, threats, use of intoxicants etc.) - the identifying characteristics of any stolen or lost property (colour, mark, model, serial number or other) A report of wrongdoing can be filed with the police anywhere, irrespective of the place of event.

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.
