Dutch Police have Increasing Problems with their Pistols

Already in 2009, the Dutch Police should have introduced their new pistols. A police lawyer, Ingrid van den Berge said that the present pistols, Walther P5, are not functioning properly in many ways. Modern bullets place too much pressure on these weapons which have to be repaired, often at high cost. In addition, they can only take 8 cartridges, whereas new weapons should have 15. The police lawyer said that if no decision is taken soon, the safety of police agents will be at risk.
