poliisi or polis

I have been watching a Finnish crime series on Netflix and have noticed that the police cars are marked POLIISI. Once in a while there will appear a police car marked POLISI.
Is this just bad continuity or are there really two ways to spell the word?

    You mentioned polisi and posted a picture with the word polis.

    As you may know, Finland is a bilingual country. Poliisi is Finnish and polis is Swedish.
