On the afternoon of Friday, March 25,2022, His Majesty King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands visited the Reclassering Nederland (Dutch Probation Service) in Amsterdam.

According to RVD, the Dutch Probation Service is:

“…committed to preventing and reducing criminal behaviour. The work revolves around behavioral change of suspects and convicts. To this end, the probation service provides advice to judges, the Public Prosecution Service and the prison system and prepares risk analyses. In addition, probation officers supervise, provide behavioral training and assist probation officers in the execution of community service. Every year, the Dutch Probation Service takes care of about 75,000 people, more than half of them are younger than 35 years. The organization works together with the police, the Public Prosecution Service, courts, municipalities and prisons, but also with partners in the social domain.”

During his visit, His Majesty King Willem-Alexander met with the employees of the Dutch Probation Service and a number of partner organizations.
