If you ever get into serious trouble in Sweden and need help from the emergency services, call 112. This number is always free to call. Staff speak English and Swedish and will be able to send help to you wherever you are in the country.
For non-urgent crimes (let’s say someone has stolen your wallet) the best option is to report directly to a police station. Officers there will be able to take a statement from you about what happened and give you advice on getting things ironed out.
Alternatively, you can contact the police on their non-urgent number, which is 11414. If you want to get in touch with the Swedish police from somewhere outside Sweden, call +46 771 141 400.
