Subjects BES

  • Juvenile delinquency

    At the Public Prosecutor’s Office, Juvenile delinquency has unabated attention and is one of the top priorities.

    The emphasis is thereby on preventing that delinquency which starts at a young age, will result in a lengthy criminal career.

  • Human trafficking / Human smuggling

    Human trafficking is often a form of modern slavery. Therefore the Netherlands have already invested a lot in the recent past in the approach to this type of crime, whereby numerous gangs have been dismantled. On the BES islands since 10/10/10 human trafficking is punishable under the BES Penal Code.

  • Relational violence

    Threats, stalking, assault, sexual abuse are examples of serious offenses. When these events occur within (dependency) relations between (former) partners or parents and (grand)children we can speak of relational violence.

  • Holdups (robberies)

    Robberies have an enormous impact on victims and their environment and provide a serious sense of insecurity. Robbers therefore can count on heavy penalties. The Public Prosecutor’s Office, the Police and the business community work closely together to reduce the number of robberies.

  • Traffic

    Traffic Regulations on the BES-islands are drawn up by the Government (The Public Entity and/or the Central Government) and are stipulated in laws, ordinances and regulations.

  • Domestic burglaries

    Tackling domestic burglary is one of the spearheads of the Public Prosecutor’s Office BES in the fight against crime.
