Organisational structure of the fire brigade and the police force in the Dutch Caribbean

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

On 10 October 2010 the Dutch Antilles ceased to exist. The islands of Curacao and St Martin were given their own constitution which afforded them a status – identical to that of Aruba – as autonomous states within the Kingdom of The Netherlands. The islands of Bonaire, Saba and St Eustatius (BES islands) were integrated into The Netherlands as ‘special municipalities’. These state reforms entailed changes for the police and the fire brigade on the three BES islands. This report gives an evaluation of the organisational structure and the functioning of the police force and the fire brigade on Bonaire, St Eustatius and Saba.
