The online exhibition Police of independent Finland

Police Museum, Tampere

  • 19.1.2018–31.12.2028

The online exhibition The police of independent Finland provides an account of how the work and professional skills of the police have evolved during the past century. See the online exhibition at http://poliisi100.fi/en


The exhibition features about a hundred photographs that illustrate these changes.
In the early years of Finnish independence, police officers were feared officials, but they have since become an everyday source of safety widely trusted by the general public.

The basis for the current service culture of the police was created in the 1950s as policemen were taught to be friendly, approachable and willing to guide the citizens. Many aspects about police work have changed considerably, including working methods, equipment, education and laws, and over time, police officers have evolved into versatile officials who are able to keep up with the rapid pace of change in society.

Compared to the situation in many other countries, the Finnish police is popular among citizens and highly regarded for its work. More than 90 % of Finnish citizens consider the police reliable and impartial.
