Police Academy at Lochem (Netherlands)
Rotterdam-Rijnmond is one of the largest police regions of the country (Netherlands). More than 6000 policemen and women take care of this area for the safety, rescue and crimefighting. They are working for about 1.2 million people who live there, work there, going out or recreate. People with a diversion of social and cultural background, with different characters and wishes.
I’m in Law Enforcement since 1996 and since 1998 I’m a police officer in Rotterdam (southside). I started there in the 9th precinct/district. Since 2006 I’m working in the 10th precinct/district in one of the worst areas of the Netherlands. Also in 2006 I became a member of the Riot Police unit in Rotterdam-Rijnmond. In 2008 I also became a member of the Bike-patrol unit. In June 2011 I was promoted as a Sergeant. I am a member of the Dutch IPA, region Rotterdam. Since 1999 I collect tie pins and started last year with patches and batches.
