The wage expenditure of the police has grown due to increases in general wage and personal arrangements, a Finnish language newspaper, Savon Sanomat, reported on Thursday quoting sources at the Ministry of the Interior and the National Police Board.
 
The newspaper report said salaries within the police leadership positions have been rising despite the national austerity programme.
 
According to the Savon Sanomat, police in senior positions or their assistants have been transferred to higher salary scales through the police reform.
 
According to the newspaper, the salaries of senior officers in the police this year amount to Euro 3.1 million higher than in 2011.
 
Police Director Sanna Heikinheimo confirmed this figure to the news agency STT.
 
However, according to the Ministry of the Interior and the National Police Board, the rise in police-leadership salary has been stalled and saving targets are now adhered to. Among other measures, the number of officers working has been reduced.
