The Netherlands is a Paradise for the Foreign Burglar

Researchers of the police academy say that the explosive growth in burglaries is due to the fact that the Netherlands is so attractive for travelling foreign burglars. When interviewed these burglars explain the attractiveness of breaking in Holland as compared to their own country. It results from the small chance to be caught and the relatively low punishment. There is little probability of being jailed and often the Prosecution does not follow up complaints. A burglar can not be punished for more than five burglaries. If he has committed more burglaries these are often not investigated. The researchers of the police academy say that one can probably fight burglars more effectively with higher penalties.
