Amsterdam police to ask people for help in solving crimes via email

DutchAmsterdam.nl — Police teams in five Amsterdam neighborhoods are participating in a experiment in which people can subscribe to email alerts and digital newsletters.

The email alerts are intended to solicit the help of citizens in solving crimes. If, for instance, a break-in occurs, subscribers within a certain radius will receive an email in which police descibe the incident. The email will also include certain questions, the answers to which may help police solve the crime.

The newsletters, wich will be published four to six times a year, will be used to inform residents and business owners of safety issues and preventative measures in the neighborhood.

If the experiment is successful in the five test areas, the program will be introduced throughout Amsterdam.

Both the email alerts and the newsletter are provided in the Dutch language only. People interested in subscribing can do so at a special website, buurtalert.nl (neighborhood alert)
