Head of Public Prosecution: Security in the Netherlands Will Decline

Harm Brouwer, head of public prosecutions, said that the security level which the Netherlands presently enjoys can not be maintained. When presenting the 2009 annual report of the Public Prosecutions Office he said that the authorities are under great financial pressure and therefore his office will also have to reduce expenses. He added that at present there is already a shortage in the detective service to deal with known or suspected criminality. This creates problems mainly in dealing with organized crime and child pornography.
