VAZ Global is located close to Amsterdam, the capital city of The Netherlands (Europe) and the bakermat of the Dutch model of community policing. 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 portfolio in English and here for Dutch.
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. In October 2019 I ran my first marathon (Amsterdam). 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 I have been a couple of times teammanager of the sport teams of my kids. Since January 2018 I am the chairman of a local resident society. I represent around 1000 residents in the place where I live.
