Evaluation of the Unambiguous National Agreements as an action framework for the police and the Public Prosecution Service for investigation and prosecution after violence against public servants

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

Since 2010, the so-called Unambiguous National Agreements (hereinafter ‘ELAs’) constitute an action framework for the police and the Public Prosecution Service (hereinafter ‘OM’) for investigation and prosecution after violence against public servants. The ELAs, a set of 32 agreements, can be viewed as a tool for the police and the OM to give substance to the repressive part of the ‘Safe Public Duty’ programme (hereinafter ‘VPT’). The ELAs are still operational whilst the VPT Programme, which also paid attention to prevention, ended at the end of 2016.
The objective of the evaluation is to gain insight into the implementation of the ELAs by the police and the OM. The central research question is: How are the ELAs applied and observed by the police and the OM and what are the experiences with the ELAs of the parties involved?
