Amsterdam: Police Can No Longer Pay Overtime to Police Detectives

Amsterdam police detectives have been told that the funds to pay their overtime for 2014 have been exhausted.  In 2015, no overtime will be paid whatsoever.  The anger of the police is so great that arrest and observation teams have threatened to strike.  As overtime can no longer be paid, detectives who have worked extra hours will have to be compensated by days off.  This will lead to a major shortage of police presence and detective capacity.  There are also several other detective units outside the capital who are in the same situation.
