According to Statistics Finland's data, a total of 861,900 offences were recorded in 2017 by the police, customs and border guard in the whole country, which is 38,500 offences (4.7 per cent) more than one year before. In all, 669,900 persons were suspected of the 644,500 offences and infractions solved in 2017. The largest group of persons suspected of offences against property were those aged 30 to 39. The increase in the share of persons aged 50 or over is at least partially explained by the growth in the age group.

Description: The statistics on offences and coercive measures focus on describing the regional distributions of crime and the use of coercive measures by the police, customs and border guard. The statistics include data on the quality and number of offences reported. In addition, the statistics comprise the numbers of offences investigated and solved by the police, customs and border guard and cases where the report has been found to be unfounded. With respect to solved offences, suspects and their ages, nationality and some socio-economic background factors are also reported. The statistics also contain data on domestic violence and municipal parking supervision, as well as on certain tasks performed by authorities, such as investigations of suicides, deer collisions, fire investigations and so on.
