(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

In 2001, the Dutch National Expertise Centre on Diversity (Landelijke ExpertiseCentrum Diversiteit), hereinafter the LECD, was established; its objectives were to offer support and advice to the country’s police forces on the subject of diversity. Originally, the LECD was established for a period of five years. Subsequently, the LECD mandate was extended by decree on two occasions; the latest extension being the period 2010-2014. During this period, the LECD concentrated on the following four themes: diversity, undesirable behaviour, multicultural skills and tackling discrimination. As of 1 January 2015, the LECD will cease to exist and the Centre’s activities should have been transferred and embedded within the National Police Force. This report evaluates the LECD’s final period. The review concentrated on the LECD’s work in respect of the four themes and the benefits derived from these by the former regional police forces. In addition, during the review, explicit attention was paid to whether the activities successfully carried out by the LECD could be safeguarded within the new police organisation.
