The Police


Our society is rapidly digitising and is giving the police new responsibilities; for example, fighting cybercrime. At the same time, large-scale digitization also offers opportunities. For example, internal information provision and security are developing, and technologies are contributing to the detection and tackling of cybercrime. Both contribute to the safety of Dutch citizens. In order to increase its effectiveness and striking power, the Police will invest heavily in cyber in the coming years.
