Netherlands closing 19 prisons due to lack of prisoners

June 27, 2013

This is a wonderful problem to have. The Netherlands is closing prisons due to a major drop in crime that has left the prisons with too many open cells. Last week, the Dutch government announced revised plans to close 19 prisons, according to NOS, a Dutch Television station. It's a reversal from the 1990s, when the prison system was overcrowded, but now the country's all set up for 14,000 prisoners, and only has 12,000 actually incarcerated.

The Dutch justice ministry expects the crime rate to keep falling.
