Who We Are

I am Marcel Zethoven

Marcel Zethoven
Founder VAZ Global

VAZ Global is located close to Amsterdam, the capital city of The Netherlands (Europe). After a few years in commercial business, in the mid-1980’s I joined the Dutch National Police service in 1987. The last ten years of my career have been focused upon community policing – both: nationally and internationally. In 2010, I founded VAZ Global Netherlands “Professionals in community policing and – safety expertise”. Click here for my personal profile.

VAZ stands for Veiligheids Adviesbureau Zethoven.

I work together with (local) specialists and partners to make all our projects to a success. Read on this website more about my experiences.

Since I graduated I have taken up again my favorite sport: running. My sport challenge: run the New York marathon under four hours. I am also a fanatic (motor) biker. I love reading books, papers (science) and profession related articles. I am a family man and spend lots of time with family and good friends. In social life a couple of times I have been team manager of the sport teams of my kids. Two of them play field hockey. Every weekend I support them at the sideline.
