Steering and monitoring of police operations

The police gets its annual budget from the Finnish Government. The 2021 budget amounted to approximately EUR 838 million.

The police’s financial statements explain how the budget is spent each year. Key figures illustrating the workload of Finland’s some 10,000 police staff are included in annual reports.

The police’s performance targets are public information. The targets are set by the Ministry of the Interior. Individual police departments’ and units’ targets are negotiated and confirmed by the National Police Board.
