Prison Wardens Feeling Increasingly Unsafe

A study by a department of the Ministry of Justice has found that Dutch prison wardens are feeling increasingly unsafe.  Two-thirds of them say that the budget cutbacks of Deputy Minister Teeven have had “a negative” or “very negative” impact on the workplace safety of prison employees.  There is increasing violence on the part of the inmates.  In a radio program, several wardens said that the shortage of personnel has led to an atmosphere of fear among prison workers.
