Not good….at all.
Every Week tens of Criminals go free because of Shortage of Police Detectives
In Amsterdam every week tens of files of crimes are put aside despite the fact that a potential perpetrator has been identified. This is due to a shortage of detectives. In view of the summer holidays of detectives many files may not be touched for months. Information about illegal growing of cannabis is not dealt with. The Amsterdam Chief of Police Pieter Jaap-Aalbersberg said that every week tens of criminals go free. He added that this mainly concerns burglars and thiefs.
