The campaign hopes to stop farmers and other landholders renting out their buildings to drugs gangs
The Northern Netherlands police started a large-scale campaign against drug labs on Tuesday, together with a series of other organisations. The “not under my nose” campaign focuses on entrepreneurs in rural areas (farmers) to protect them from the dangers of drug crime.
Last week it was announced that there are more and more drug labs and dump locations in the Northern Netherlands, reports the GIC.
“It is precisely rural areas that turn out to be an attractive location,” explains Sybrand Buma, chairman of the RIEC Northern Netherlands steering group. “Think of farmers or other entrepreneurs with large sheds or sheds. As a government, we want to prevent them from renting out their buildings to criminals and with the help of this campaign we indicate how incredibly dangerous it is if you allow yourself to be seduced. Entrepreneurs usually do not have a good idea of the enormous risks to themselves and their environment. Once on-board, it is often no longer an option to get out unscathed.”
