Organised Crime in the Netherlands

In this series, we look at different aspects of organised crime in the Netherlands. Criminal groups engage in various organised crime activities, mostly related to drug production and trafficking (cannabis, synthetic drugs and cocaine). The major Dutch ports, particularly Rotterdam, serve as key hubs for illegal activities. Money laundering and cybercrime also contribute to the complexity of the underworld. The country's strategic location, advanced infrastructure and tolerant policies create an environment that is conducive to criminal enterprises. Law enforcement agencies, however, actively collaborate with other (public and private) partners, both nationally and internationally, to combat and prevent these activities, employing advanced technology and intelligence-sharing to disrupt organised crime networks operating within the Dutch borders.
