Why Are Netherland’s Prisons Closing?

OSNEPALNEWS, Kathmandu, 7th March: In 2013, 19 prisons in the Netherlands closed because the country didn’t have enough criminals to fill them. The government of the Netherlands is to close a further four of the nation’s prisons as crime rates hit their lowest level since 1980.

While these closures will result in the loss of nearly 2,000 jobs, only 700 of which will transition into other unknown roles within Dutch law enforcement, the trend of closing prisons follows a steady drop in crime since 2004.
