No competition

Last Thursday, in a meeting with the people of Ondiep, Utrecht police opposed formation of a neighbourhood patrol. Ondiep is the Utrecht neighbourhood that was the scene of anti-police riots after a policeman killed a man who was defending a friend from Turkish hoodlums.

As an alternative the police said they would operate a phone helpdesk in order to tackle the problems of Ondiep's residents with Muslim ("Dutch") hoodlums. The helpdesk would be open from Thursday to Sunday from 19:00 to 24:00 hours.
