Leading Expert Heads of Police Should be Fired

Professor Cyrille Fijnaut, a leading Dutch criminologist, has said that those who conceived and implemented the re-organisation of the National Police are incompetent and should be fired.  He added: “why would the people who came up with the wrong plans and then executed them inadequately not be replaced?  Is it possible that they would excel in the future in activities where so far they have obviously proved unsuccessful?”  Former chief commissioner of the Amsterdam police, Joop van Riessen, reserves his criticism for Minister of Security and Justice, Ard van der Steur .  He says those mainly responsible for the problems in the national police are politicians.  He added “the Minister wants to deflect attention away from his own failures.”
