Police Chase Youngsters off the Streets in Amsterdam West

In the Geuzenveld-Slotermeer area in Amsterdam West the police are chasing away youngsters who are just hanging around with friends, even if they are not causing any problems. In 2007 there were 170 armed robberies in the western parts of Amsterdam, almost half of the total for the whole city. Very often youngsters serve as lookouts for this purpose. The main targets of robberies in recent months were hotels, pharmacies and jewelers.
