The police will take measures, if nudity creates public nuisance in any place.
 
During the summer heat people found to put on less clothes not only in domestic circuits but also in public places.
 
The police have been receiving reports of scantily dressed persons or people wandering naked in public places.
 
Superintendent  Seppo Kujala of Helsinki police said that the police will intervene on the matter, if reduced clothing cause mischief among people.
 
“We will tell people to put on their clothes and we will ensure that happens. Often people receive fines,” Kujala said.
 
The situations will be assessed case by case. For instance, according to Kujala basking in the sun along the beaches has become more common and no intervention will be made in this regard.
 
“The police aim to comply with the average citizen's view what is offensive and what is not. In most cases, the incidents involve other misconducts such as alcohol abuse where nudity is mainly a by-product,” said the police superintendent.
