Event Briefing

Economic Crime Investigation Survey in the Finnish police in 2023

The seventh in the Northern Research Police Webinar Series of Spring 2024

Speakers: Vesa Muttilainen – & Terhi Kankaanranta

Chair: Vesa Huotari


Based on the data collected via an electronic survey, the state of economic crime investigation in Finland from various perspectives will be reviewed. A questionnaire will be sent to persons who perform economic crime investigations in the Finnish police. Topics such as e.g. the investigation process and its organization, co-operation between the police and other authorities and involved parties as well as the police staff’s training needs are addressed. The previous such surveys were carried out in 2011 and 2015. In our presentation we will describe the main results of the latest survey, and compare the results to the previous studies. Besides these, we present police statistics on the development of new, open and closed economic crime cases in the longer run.
