How to make an emergency call from a public telephone by dialing 110 or 119

2. Be careful of thieves:

Theft made up the greater part of all crimes committed in Miyagi Prefecture last year.

A large percentage were targeted on bicycles, motorbikes and cars.

Be careful of burglars, pickpockets and molesters, too.

3. Report of lost and found articles to police:

If you lose or find valuables (e.g. wallet), please report them to the nearest police box or police station.

4. Tough on drugs:

Possession, usage, transfer, production or import of cocaine, heroin and other illegal drugs are prohibited by law.

5. Driver's license information:

Those who have a driver's license issued in a foreign country and who have lived more than 3 months in the issuing country are permitted to have their licenses altered to a Japanese one, provided that the licence is genuine and its validity period remains.

For further information, call your nearest police station or Driver's License Center at 022-373-3601.

6. Procedure to obtain a Criminal Record Certificate

Those who are going to settle down in a foreign country, or stay there for a long time, may be required to submit their criminal record certificate from Japan. If they fail to submit this certificate, their entry in the other country may be rejected. As a service to these people, the Police will issue a criminal record certificate, with the request made by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

7. In case of fire and first-aid:

In case of fire, sudden illness or injury, call 119. Emergency calls to the fire department from public telephones can be made in the same way that you call police by dialing 110.
