The Dutch police union (NPB) said that policemen have to wear the same trousers or shirts for months on end because the Dutch police have no reserve clothing to give out. Ordering new clothing does not help because supplies may take half a year to arrive. A monitoring point has been opened in the meantime on this issue. Hundreds of complaints have already been received. Saskia Dorrestein, Secretary of the NPB said that she knows a policeman who has only one pair of trousers which he wears daily. He doesn’t dare wash them anymore because in the area where he places his gun, there is a hole of two centimeters and he is afraid that if he were to wash the trousers, they would disintegrate.
