Helsinki - Post Report Question and Answers
Are there personal security concerns to be aware of at this post? Please describe.
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
