Ostrobothnia Police Department, units and services

We provide services in the regions of Ostrobothnia, Southern Ostrobothnia and Central Ostrobothnia. Our area of operation extends from Kristiinankaupunki to Kokkola on the western coast and from Alavus to Kannus in the east. There are about 443,000 inhabitants in the area covered by our police department. We are a bilingual police department, as both Finnish and Swedish are generally spoken in the area. For more information on our services and opening hours, see the details of individual police stations.

In emergencies, always dial 112.

Prefer online services.

Read the instructions first before applying for a passport, identity card or other permit, or submitting a crime report.

Book an appointment beforehand, if possible.

For information about pending cases, contact the police department that is processing your case. You can request records and copies by contacting the police department or station.

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.
