“The production will show an unprecedentedly broad cross section of Finland through the eyes of the Police. The Åland Islands are featured in the series for the first time. Likewise, the fell landscape can be followed during the work of two patrols in Lapland”, Chief Superintendent at the National Police Board Marko Savolainen says. The patrols from Kouvola and Raasepori will feature some familiar faces, whereas new patrols will come from Helsinki, Kemi, Mariehamn, Muonio, Oulu, Savonlinna, Turkus, Vaasa and Vantaa.

The production series was filmed during the summer and autumn of 2021, in the middle of what was an exceptional time due to corona. The spirit of the times has been captured by a corona-related mission at the border and summer celebrations in the park once restrictions had eased. There are also solutions to surprisingly everyday problems such as rescuing a mobile phone from a car roof as well as more exciting missions such as a suspected explosion. “The series shows the work of the Police in all its joys and sorrows. This production season highlights encounters between the Police and people, with many empathetic encounters and good discussions between the Police and citizens”, Savolainen describes. The series is aired at Channel 4 in Finland, but later will be available on Finnish Police social media channels.
