Translated from Dutch NOS TV:
The National Police should have more people with a multicultural background, otherwise the police will lose public support. That says Max Daniel, Police Commissioner of the Northern Netherlands … in an interview with the Volkskrant newspaper.
According to Daniel, police reflects society insufficiently. In addition, police employees with a migration background do not often enough reach senior positions, he said. Daniel, of mixed Dutch-Indonesian ancestry, is in the higher levels of the National Police the only one with a non-western background.
He argues that the urgency of ethnic diversity is not sufficiently felt by the leadership.
