Lock, Stock and Two Penal Systems

The Dutch government are facing a strange crisis; prisons are under populated. There are more guards and other prison staff than prisoners. Crime rates in the Netherlands have decreased slightly in the last few years but aren’t a lot lower than adjacent countries.

Many Dutch people think that sentences are to lenient for violent offenders. Apparently the Ministry of Justice is in the process of closing prisons and cutting 3,500 staff.

The UK government approved emergency measures, after it emerged that there were only 265 free jail spaces left out of an 85,800 capacity across England and Wales.
