National police

Less bureaucracy, more quality

More scope to do the job and a

dynamic presence on the streets

National police | August 2011

Making the Netherlands safer

A national police force will be established under the responsibility of the public safety minister.

The above excerpt from the coalition agreement (October 2010) announced a major operation with far-reaching consequences for our police system: the creation of a national police force. The implementation of this plan has already begun. The new organisation is beginning to take shape, but not everyone is aware of this yet. Therefore, we would like to familiarise you with our plans for a more efficient and effective way of delivering public safety which gives individual police officers more scope to do their jobs.

In this leaflet you can read why a national police force is necessary and how the new organisation will be structured. With the help of the national police newsletter and the web portfolio at www.rijksoverheid.nl/nationalepolitie, you can stay informed about the formation of the national police force and other current police issues. This will give you an overview of the development of the national police force as it takes shape.

Ivo OpsteltenMinister of Security and Justice

Public safety and policing are key

The government wants to change the police organisation so that police officers can devote more time to safety on the streets. The plan is for the national police force to be up and running by 1 January 2012.

At present, the police is organised into 25 regional forces plus the Dutch Police Services Agency, each with its own chief. These will be replaced by a national police force, consisting of ten regional units. This has a number of advantages: The police can work more as a single unit if everyone is

accountable to one national police commissioner. The police can spend more time on street patrols and

investigative work. There will be less red tape for both the police and the public.

(For example, reporting crimes will be made easier.) Officers will spend more time on policing than on paperwork. The various subdivisions of the police will be able to work

together more quickly and effectively, thanks primarily to automatisation.

It will be possible to handle IT, housing, purchasing and HR centrally. This will lower operational management costs (i.e. overheads).

How is the national police force organised?The management hierarchy and the division of responsibilities will change. As of next year there will be a single national police force (comprising 10 regional units), one or more national units (such as a national crime squad) and the police service centre (a national agency for operational management tasks).

Minister of Security and JusticeThe Minister of Security and Justice is politically accountable for the national police. The Minister approves the budget and sets parameters within which the force will work, deciding issues such as whether there should be ticket quotas.

National Police CommissionerA single police commissioner will be in charge of the national force and its 10 regional units.

Regional unitsTen regional units will be created to handle policing. Each unit will be headed by its own chief.

One or more national unitsThere will be at least one national unit to handle police duties that can best be performed at national level (e.g. an arrest team and/or national crime squad).

Police service centreA police service centre will take over the operational manage-ment tasks of the current forces and the Dutch Police Cooperation Facility. These tasks include HR, housing, IT and financing.

Local authorityAuthority over the police will not change. As before, the mayor and the public prosecutor will make local agreements about the deployment of the police. Every municipality will draw up a public safety and security plan, on which basis the mayor will manage the police.

Progress of the billIn order for the national police force to become a reality, the Police Act 1993 must be replaced. To this end a bill was submit-ted to the House of Representatives in 2006. That bill is currently being amended. All official documents relating to this bill can be found on www.rijksoverheid.nl/nationalepolitie. The goal is for the national police force to be operational by 1 January 2012.

Stay informedNational police newsletterThe Ministry of Security and Justice publishes a regular newslet-ter on the latest developments surrounding the formation of the national police force and other relevant and topical police issues. The national government website contains a section on the police where you can find all relevant publications and the latest news (www.rijksoverheid.nl/nationalepolitie; Dutch only).
