State of affairs with regard to the pluralization of the police function in the Netherlands

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

This study is not only about gaining an insight into the current state of affairs with regard to the pluralization of the police function in the Netherlands at national and local level, but also to consider the Dutch situation in a comparison with other European variants and developments. Various issues were analyzed. In the first place, the legal context in which duties and competencies are exercised by the police, was explored. A distinction was been made between tasks and competencies that may legally be performed exclusively by the police, and tasks and authorities that may be performed by the police and other actors.
