Four out of five police officers in the country think that the influx of asylum seekers has created a serious threat to the national security and security of Finns, said a survey report by Finnish language newspaper consortium Lännen Media.
 
Almost one out four police officers consider the threat as very high.
 
Older police officers, however, believe the threat to be lower compared to the younger officers.
 
One out of three police officers believes that the immigration policy has been executed very poorly during the past year. 
 
The officers also expressed their gratitude towards the refugee centre in Tornio.
 
The police officers emphasised the fact that the identities and backgrounds of the immigrants cannot be ascertained as the basis of the increased threat.
 
The survey also examined which parties the police officers voted for during the previous elections. 
 
Half of the police officers either voted for the Kansallinen Kokoomus (National Coalition Party) or the Perussuomalaiset (Finns Party).
 
The survey questionnaire was answered by 2,500 police officers.
