Police

The role of the police is to protect the public, prevent violence and crime and investigate and solve cases of criminal offences.

The public is obliged to obey instructions issued by the police. Failure to do so may result in a fine or imprisonment.

The police enjoy a high level of trust from Icelandic society, and everybody may safely approach the police if they believe that they have been the victim of an offence or violence.

Information on the nearest police station can be found under My Municipality.
