Crime & Safety

Oslo - Crime & Safety

Click here to go to this city guide's homepage


Oslo's reputation as a crime-ridden city has unfortunately grown over the last decade, recording an increase of 700 percent since 1960. The crimes range from personal and automobile thefts to attacks on embassies by terrorists. The city has the dubious distinction of having the highest crime rate in Scandinavia in terms of reported crimes (90 per 1000 as against 22 in New York in 2007).

The SalTo is an initiative of the City of Oslo and the Oslo Police District to combat the city's crime rate. It focuses on children and young adults who are vulnerable to crime, and those who have been booked for criminal offences since 2006.

It is not uncommon for tourists landing in Oslo to be pick pocketed at the airport.

The Oslo Police District is located at
