Agreement on consensus-statutory law Police

The common service, part of the consensus-statutory law Police, was for months an obstacle in the negotiations between the island territories Curacao and St. Maarten, the Netherlands Antilles, and the Netherlands.  Yet, an agreement was reached on this yesterday evening.

“They feared that it was going to be an organization like the RTS (Detective Cooperative Team), but it was set up in such way that this provision is not a fourth corps and we are sure that it can also not be slipped in”, says commissioner of Political Structure Zita Jesus-Leito (PAR) before the Amigoe.

According to State Secretary of Kingdom Relations Ank Bijleveld-Schouten (CDA), this was never the Netherlands’ intention.  What changed in the earlier set-up, is that the common provision is now in the corps with an own chief.  Instead of using the word ‘service’, we are now consequently talking about ‘provisions’.

In order to improve the quality of the police organization before the start of the political structure, three study groups will be created.  They will have to come up with the following no later than 1 December:  drawings for the three corps; a financial projection; and a layout plan for the common provisions and for the common police training center.
