Serious Breach of Rules for Carrying Arms by Police

The police greatly breaches the rules for carrying arms. Last year 1,200 policemen, who had failed their target tests, did not return their weapons as required. In police circles it is assumed that half of these are patrolling with weapons, although this is forbidden. Minister of the Interior Ter Horst has written a non-public letter to police units, requesting that all these weapons be returned. It had been announced already in 2004 that unlicensed patrolling with weapons would be stopped. http://www.parool.nl/parool/nl/1/Home/article/detail/15155/2008/05/28/Politie-overtreedt-eigen-wapenregels.dhtml
