Chairman of the opposition party Vihreät liitto (Green League) Ville Niinistö on Saturday said the police should strengthen their work in tolerance and equality.
 
Knowledge of cultural backgrounds is becoming increasingly important in police work, Niinistö said.
 
He also insists that the crimes that affect women and their threats must be identified in all police work.
 
The Vihreät chairman believes that the police should begin recruiting those with migrant backgrounds as well as appropriate proportions of women.
 
“We want that the Finnish people can continue to rely on the police,” Niinistö told the Vihreät annual meeting.
 
He stressed that funding for police officers in the field could be increased. In addition, local police staff should be increased.
 
According to Niinistö, worries and fears are not solved by racist street patrols that move along city streets.
 
“More than 99 per cent of the asylum seekers are not criminal suspects in Finland,” said Niinistö.
