Soldiers are committing more crimes than ever during their services in the Finnish Defence Forces at the recent period, reported the Finnish language daily Keskisuomalainen. 
 
The number of salaried service members committing crimes has grown 42 per cent in 2014 from that in 2013.
 
Salaried soldiers, including officers and non-commissioned officers, have been found guilty of crimes, including, for example, staying away from work without permission or being intoxicated at work. 
 
The list of military criminal offences committed also includes violating provisions on information and document security.
 
The number of reservist absences as well as peacekeeper conduct offences is also on the rise, mainly due to intoxication. 
 
Meanwhile, the overall number of all military criminal offences has fallen by a third since 2013, and crimes committed by conscripts has fallen 40 per cent. The number of managerial crimes has also fallen.
