The bill is for the huge scale of additional police and defense resources that were deployed after PST (Norwegian Police Security Service) reacted to messages about a specific terror threat against Norway.

Part of the security measures included armed police was deployed at airports, railway stations and border passes.

Minister of Justice, Anders Anundsen, said to NTB: “In relation to the terror threat this summer, the alert was raised and protocols were put in place to secure Norway. This, of course, comes with a cost. The proposition that the government put forward today covers the most basic additional expenses.”

Together with Minister of Finance, Siv Jensen, Anundsen proposed additional grants be added to this year’s national budget. They will give 61.3 million kroner ($9.3 million) to the police, 4.6 million kroner to PST ($700,000), and 7.5 million kroner ($1.1 million) to the Norwegian Armed Forces to cover additional expenditure related to staff overtime, travelling costs and calling back personnel from their vacations. In addition, 1.2 million kroner ($182,000) will be granted for the use of helicopters during the alert.
