About 300 police officers are considering changing careers, reported Finnish language news consortium Lännen Media quoting the data of last year's employee survey.

According to Lännen Media, there are just under 7,400 police officers in Finland.

Police personnel manager Satu Koivu said to Lännen Media that the reasons might be the organisational changes and cost-saving measures implemented in recent years by the police administration.

Police willing to change fields have also been found in Sweden, where the main reason for the career change is believed to be remuneration.

Finnish Police Federation chief shop steward Pekka Lassila believes that payment is also one of the biggest reasons in Finland as well.

According to him, police pay has not increased in a way that reflects the extent that work has increased.

The average fixed monthly salary of a police officer was 2,853 euros last year.
