The Dutch police still do too little to fight corruption within their own ranks, according to an investigation by the Ministry of Security and Justice's Scientific Research and Documentation Center, NOS reports.

Police officer screening is still not properly done, according to the researchers. "Ever fewer employees are subject to the heavier forms of screening", the report reads. The screening investigations are also less detailed than in the past and too few interim screenings are done.

The number of crimes committed in the Netherlands decreased by 23 percent over the past seven years. Last year the police registered just over one million crimes, compared to 1.3 million in 2007. The decrease can be seen across the board in all categories of crime.
