Police will receive 22 billion forints (EUR 71m) more than this year, of which 5 billion forints will be spent on replacing vehicles, Kontrát told a press conference.
The extra funding will also enable technical improvements to be implemented in the border crossing system. Also, the standby police force will move to a new headquarters, he added.
Kontrát said in response to a question that upcoming events such as the 2017 World Aquatics Championships, the Formula One race and the Sziget Festival will put an extra burden on the police, the anti-terrorism centre and secret services.
