Regardless of the extent and scope of an investigation, police are bound by constraints imposed upon them by Dutch Police Force Law and Dutch Constitution. If a prosecutor believes you stepped outside your lawful bounds as an officer, you can find yourself facing serious criminal charges of (military) police misconduct. If you are a (Military) Police Officer, you know that you need to protect your law enforcement badge, after all, it’s your livelihood!
Dutch (Military) Police Officers put their lives on the line to protect the public on a regular basis. MR. B.A.S.
