Key Business (Guards)
Putting theory into practice in the most modern prison in the Netherlands.
In 2016 the largest and most modern prison in the Netherlands, Judicial Complex Zaanstad, opened its doors. New architecture and a new professional modus operandi enhanced the efficiency of the complex, instilling a heightened sense of responsibility within staff and inmates. The demanding and versatile work of guards and prison officials gives us an insight into modern prison practices.
