An additional 130 police officers should finish training by early 2023.
But this is not enough, said the police and minister Henri Kox at a press conference on Wednesday morning, announcing a second recruitment campaign.
While the first one had shown some results, another 200 people were urgently needed. Motivating candidates seems to be a problem, despite the 10% budget increase, which mostly went to staffing. The new campaign aims to show how diverse the day to day of a police officer can be. Registration is open between 20 October and 3 November.
