Belgian police doubts its ability to achieve new goals
Monday, 02 May 2016
Local and federal police want to examine whether the objectives in the national security plan can be achieved with existing resources and budgets. De Standard reported on Monday (2 May) that the police have doubts about its ability to meet the objectives assigned to it in the new national security plan.
The latest version of the national security plan, which is updated every five years, will be presented next month.
“Police at large wants to send a signal warning that it is not possible to continue any longer like this,” says Willy Bruggeman, president of the Federal Police Board. “Especially in the federal police the limits have been reached.”
Staff shortages and poor infrastructure and equipment are the main problems.
