Minister Grapperhaus responds to the call from Trade Union BOA ACP and the Dutch Boa Bond to start the pilot earlier. “I am aware of the wishes of boas, which is partly why we will soon enter into consultations with the police, the Public Prosecution Service and mayors and we will see whether the pilot can start on 1 January. I really want to speed up the implementation of the agreements. ” 22 municipalities have registered for the pilot, the ministry says. According to the Dutch Boa Bond, about 11 of these have now been selected to participate, including Amsterdam.
According to the union, the agreement with the ministry was that the pilot would start this autumn. “The appointment was the autumn, as far as I am concerned it is not January 1,” said the chairman of the Dutch Boa Bond, Ruud Kuin. “The entire process has been delayed for some time now. But I had hoped that the pilot could still start in November. ”
The unions would like boas to get a baton as soon as possible because they expect aggression to increase further during this corona time. They mainly foresee problems with two corona measures: the enforcement of the ban on alcohol possession after 8 p.m. and gatherings with more than four people.
The chairman of the Security Council, Hubert Bruls, already announced that immediate action will be taken faster if people violate the corona rules. After one warning, a fine immediately follows. Kuin: “As long as boas walk on the street without a baton, they think twice before approaching a group of drunk youngsters. We therefore anticipate that there will be less enforcement on these two measures. ”
