National Police Board of Finland
The duty of the Finnish Police is to secure legal and social order, maintain public order and security and prevent, detect and investigate crimes; and submit cases to prosecutors for consideration of charges. Eleven police departments and the national units, the National Bureau of Investigation and Police University College, operate under the National Police Board. Seppo Kolehmainen is the National Police Commissioner.
The Finnish Police handle about one million emergency assignments per year and receive reports of approximately 800,000 crimes. About 95 per cent of Finnish people have fairly or very high confidence in the police.
The operations are guided by common values: service, fairness, professionalism and staff welfare.
