Norway's online police patrol is like having a police station on the internet. We give advice on how to avoid becoming the victim of cybercrime and solve specific problems. You can also contact the online police patrol if you want to talk to someone in the police.

Norway's online police patrol:

  • Accepts tip-offs and information about cybercrime.

  • Is a daytime service.

  • Cannot be used to report a crime or submit applications for permits/visas/passports, etc.

You can find information about:

  • DOs and DON'Ts for using the internet safely
  • Children's rights online
  • Online fraud
  • Unlawful sharing of photos and video recordings
  • Online sexual abuse
  • Online blackmail or extortion

Online police patrol is part of the project we have called "having a police presence online".

We want to

  • Engage in open, preventive policework in places where we find members of the general public.
  • Advise the public how to use the internet safely.
  • Be visible and accessible for people online.

The Facebook page is managed by the online police patrol.
