Police more visible in tourist spots

WILLEMSTAD - The police will be more visible in tourist spots. Despite the decline in high-impact crime rates, many tourists experience theft and robbery. 


According to the police, tourists' cars are often broken into and atrakos (assaults) are committed with some regularity. That is why the police, together with the politur (tourism police), will deploy more units in places where many tourists come. There will be more patrols and the units will be more visible in tourist areas. 


The police will approach organizations in the tourism sector to collaborate effectively. "It is not the intention to sow panic," the police emphasized. “But we must try to avoid these criminal activities.”
