Suspects of vandalism and crimes against public order (aged 12 to 24 years)

All registered suspects of vandalism and crimes against public order.

Vandalism and crimes against public order and public authorities are defined in Articles 131 to 136, 137c to 137g, 138 to 151a, 157, 158, 177 to 182, 184 to 206, 350 to 352 of the Dutch Criminal Code. These are crimes against public order, including instigation, unlawful entry, computer intrusion, local breaches of the peace, participation in a criminal or terrorist organisation, violence and blasphemy. These are also crimes such as discrimination, arson and vandalism. False declarations, human trafficking and bribery of civil servants – all crimes against public authorities – are also included in this category.

This concerns persons who have been registered in the National Law Enforcement Database (BVH) of the Dutch police. Persons who have not been registered in the Persons Database (BRP) will be included in the absolute number of suspects, but not in the relative numbers. A person who has been registered more than once during a reporting year, will only be counted once in the total number of suspects. In addition, for each offence they will be counted once in the main crime group.
