Toripolliisi (The Bobby at the Market Place in English) is a bronze sculpture located at the market square in Oulu, Finland. It was made by sculptor Kaarlo Mikkonen in 1987. 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.

  • Nice variety of meals with fish, unfortunately only burgers for vegetarians. All and all nice place with a good food in a touristic heart of Oulu.
  • Food's good, service was nice and personal even in busy hours, good location. Not the best fine dining in Oulu, but great for larger grouos and/or meetings. Cabinets are well equipped
