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.

The Central Jewish Board (CJO) is asking synagogue congregations to start a letter-writing campaign to convince the Mayors of their cities to add more security around Jewish sites in the Netherlands. The letter is a response to the attack in Paris and the raid in Verviers, reports NRC. Both France and Belgium have deployed the army to guard the Jewish institutions.
