Police arms




The basic police arms consist of a baton, handcuffs and a pistol.

The Dutch police has the power to use the pistol in order to exercise some of its tasks. Use of the firearm is governed by a special official instruction, in which strict conditions are laid down with respect to the use of violence in general and the use of firearms in particular.
