Study into increased mobility and changes in crime

Study into increased mobility and changes in crime

(full text only available in Dutch)


Even though the police’s workload is infinite, the police’s capacity is limited. Hence, it should carefully be distributed amongst all regional police units. The current distribution is based on a distribution key that is registered in the so-called Decree distribution capacity and resources police. The previous reorientation of the key took place between 2010 and 2012.

Multiple of those involved in police work, such as the mayors representing the mayors of different police regions, wonder if a number of new phenomena will influence capacity division. Is there reason to change the current distribution in 2019?

This is the main research question: How and to what extent has the budget allocation system of the police taken into account the problems that have arisen along with increased mobility and changes in crime from 2010/2012 onwards?
