Are there personal security concerns to be aware of at this post? Please describe.

None. Very Safe. Safest country I have ever been in. - Jul 19, 2012
None... no roving patrol, no bars on the windows, no alarms. - Jan 23, 2011
Almost none. Some purse and phone snatchings if you are in the wrong place and not paying attention. Sometimes the drunks on the trams can be a bit aggressive. - May 9, 2010
No. - Apr 4, 2009
None. Crime rate is extremely low. Finns are very honest. There is a problem with alcoholism so just stay away from the drunks. - Mar 26, 2008
