From Monday Amsterdam is removing the manned police houses located at various Jewish institutions in the city. The guard posts are being replaced by advanced camera systems and a special police team in charge of monitoring them, Het Parool reports.

According to mayor Eberhard van der Laan, the replacing the posts with camera surveillance will not have a negative impact on the security situation. The city started giving Jewish institutions extra security after an attack on the Jewish Museum in Brussels in 2014.
