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.
