Portuguese police stage protest march over pay, conditions

Thousands of police officers marched through Lisbon Thursday to demand better pay and conditions. Holding banners saying, ’We protect the people, but who protects us?’, protesters demanded higher salaries, new equipment, and improved benefits. The entry-level pay for a police officer in Portugal is 789 euros, compared to 1,309 euros for an equivalent position in Poland and 1,309 euros in France.
