External environment and statistics

The police keeps a close eye on the ever-changing environment in which it operates. Analyses are useful for understanding social trends, megatrends and phenomena. These social changes have an impact on both the nature of crime and the safety of the public.

Analysis of the operational environment promotes intelligence-led planning of police operations

Analyses enable the police to better identify and understand phenomena that are significant in police work. 

The analysis operations area of responsibility in the National Police Board’s Police Operations Unit produces analyses of the operating environment and statistics for the police. Broader public analyses are also published on the website of the police. Certain analyses are intended only for the internal use of the police.

Data can be analysed from various perspectives, including those of the perpetrators or victims of crime. The analyses also follow global criminal phenomena. The police monitors and assesses changes in the numbers of crime reports in Finland as international criminal phenomena arrive in the country.

Statistics

In addition to the crime-focused analysis of the operational environment, monthly statistics are published on all criminal incidents reported to the police as well as on police alert duties, operational response times, service capability times, traffic surveillance performances and services and fees of the police.

The statistics can be reviewed at the national level or filtered by police department or by municipality.
