Logo District and agent together

An WAS team is active in every neighborhood in Zoetermeer. Local residents and district police officers work together in these teams. They patrol the neighborhood together on a regular basis to keep an eye on things and signal abuses.

Even when there are no special surveillance nights, the WAS members are alert for abuses. In addition, they are points of contact for residents who smell danger or signal something suspicious. WAS teams also participate in municipality-wide projects, such as the major RandstadRail control actions, the anti-sackroller team, safety evenings in neighborhoods, the 112 Safety Day and preventive actions to combat residential burglaries.

Participating in WAS?

WAS can always use new members. If you would like to actively contribute to a safe neighborhood, please register via email address buurtpreventie@zoetermeer.nl. Of course, there is also the possibility to join on a trial basis.
