MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Norway's Police Immigration Service (PU) is targeting a record-setting 9,000 deportations this year, up by around 1,200 from the previous milestone, Norwegian media reported Friday.

PU's current record stands at 7,825 deportations carried out in 2015, with the same number initially set as the target for this year, according to Norway Today.

On Friday, the outlet cited a new letter from the PU to the Police Directorate, in which it increased that number to 9,000.

"If we’re to increase the deportations, we need more resources," the United Kingdom's Daily Express quoted PU chief Kristin Kvigne as saying.
