The interior ministry on Monday decided to close down 11 police stations in the country to shrink the network of police stations and reduce office costs. 
 
The police stations selected for closure are Mäntyharju, Siilinjärvi, Parikkala, Mäntsälä, Hanko, Eura, Kaarina, Haukipudas, Liminka, Ylöjärvi, and Lempäälä.
 
The decision was made on the basis of a National Police Board proposal.
 
The proposal also included closing police stations in Huittinen, Ilomantsi, Mänttä-Vilppula, Juva, and Outokumpu, but the ministry decided to keep them open.
 
The closure of the police stations will save an estimated 745,000 euros annually. 
 
The decision comes into effect on June 22.
 
There are currently 119 police stations in Finland.
