Police Commander: Computer Problems a Catastrophe

Peter-Jaap Aalbersberg, the commander of the regional police in IJsselland, has sent a confidential letter to the police body responsible for computers, saying: “The non-functioning of our systems hits the main artery of my organization.” According to the NOVA TV program, the letter does not refer only to a weeklong breakdown of the computer system in parts of the country, but also to the poor functioning of the entire system. The police trade union ACP earlier this week presented a “black book” on the failures of the police computer system to the council of police commanders. Minister Guusje ter Horst says that as soon as the temporary problems are solved, an external body will be charged with investigating the matter thoroughly.
