A lot is happening in logistics that points to a visit from drug criminals. In the harbour, at the office and even outside your work. Recognize suspicious situations and report them. That works!
In collaboration with the Nissewaard police and national Customs, we share the message below. We fight drug smugglers in all sorts of ways in the region. Those who work in logistics see and hear a lot. So also things that are not correct or are downright suspicious. What they can be and who to report them to are listed below and in the brochure.
Who do you report to and why?
- Security manager or manager of the company where you work.
For concrete incidents (for example burglary or attempted recruitment) and/or vague suspicions (for example about a customer or colleague). Customs/police will be called in depending on the content of the report.
- Customs control room, 088-6223100
In case of suspicious shipments, the logistics service provider can make an active report. The control room will contact colleagues from the relevant jurisdiction to set up an inspection.
- Police 0900-8844, 088-0087444 or 112
For concrete incidents and/or suspicious situations on and along the public road. In case of emergency, always call 112. For reports of transport crime or theft of a vehicle, call the Stolen Vehicle and Transport Crime Reporting Desk.
- Report Crime Anonymously, 0800-7000 or online via www.meldmisdaadanoniem.nl
If you know a perpetrator, but that perpetrator also knows you, reporting is a dilemma. You can always tell your story anonymously.
- Neighborhood police officer/area police officer
In the region, the police have specific contact persons with knowledge of the environment and the sector.
- Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate, www.ilent.nl/contact
For reporting mala fide practices in the transport sector and reports about cross-border waste streams, serious soil pollution and illegal acts with hazardous substances, you can contact the Environment and Transport Inspectorate (ILenT) (also anonymously).
What is valuable information in a report?
- As many details as possible
- Characteristics of cars such as license plates, color, type
- Characteristics/data of perpetrators (including social media accounts)
- Logos/company names
- Container numbers
- Phone numbers
- Email addresses
- Bank account numbers
Wondering which suspicious situations you may encounter? And would you recognize suspicious situations and make the right decision?
