Helsinki - Post Report Question and Answers

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

Nope. Zero. - Dec 2022

The security situation in Helsinki is excellent, and substantially better than in the U.S. However, expatriates would do well to abide by the same common-sense security practices that they use in their home communities. - Oct 2018

None. Very Safe. Safest country I have ever been in. - Jul 2012

None... no roving patrol, no bars on the windows, no alarms. - Jan 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 2010

No. - Apr 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 2008
