The sculpture measures 220×150×112 centimetres (86.6×59×44 inches), and it was named in honour of the bobbies that once patrolled the market place. The sculpture was funded with the help of a public fund raising started in 1985, and it was revealed in September 1987.

  • The Police statue at the Market Square in Oulu is symbol of the town. Everyone wants to take a selfie with him. He is an imposing figure at the Market Hall. A must, when you visit Oulu.  more »
  • This is a truly sight to behold. You can find this statue near the harbor and market. Apparently it represents a true Oulu spirit or something like that.  more »
  • Average restaurant, great location. Food and drinks are good, but nothing special. Kids salmon plate for 8€ is really good, almost like the adults plate, that costs more than double.
  • Probably one of the best steaks in Oulu. No, don't order anything other than tenderloin steak. Expensive, but definatively worth it. This one with goat cheese and new potatoes.
