Where is the police present online?

Examples of applicable legislation:

Norwegian Police Act section 7

Norwegian Copyright Act section 45

Norwegian Penal Code:

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.

  • Online police patrol accepts tip-offs and information about cybercrime.

  • Online police patrol is a daytime service.

  • You cannot report a crime or submit applications for permits/visas/passports, etc to the online police patrol.

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, and advise the public how to use the internet safely.
