Police stop 16 000 investigations due to shortage of detectives

A police spokesman has confirmed that Dutch police in 2018, until November has stopped 16 000 crime investigations about which there have been complaints and registrations. This concerns exclusively crimes where the police believe they can solve them because there is sufficient evidence. The amount of cases halted has been at this level for a number of years already. The ACP Police Trade Union has also said that major crimes are not dealt with due to lack of staff.
