We ensure that our capital city is safe and pleasant for everyone together with the City of Helsinki, other authorities, communities and the residents.
The Helsinki police station is in Pasila. You can report an offence or apply for a passport, identification card and other licences with us.
The Helsinki Police Department was established in 1826, and it is the largest police unit in Finland. The department employs some 1,600 people, of which around 1,300 are police officers.
In addition to our basic duties as the local police force, we are responsible for the safety of the President, members of the Government and state visitors. The national Police Rapid Response Unit Karhu, the national human trafficking investigative team and the Police Traffic Safety Centre are also at the Helsinki Police Department.
