Almere starts campaign against weapon use

ALMERE – The municipality of Almere has launched a campaign to combat the use of weapons in the city. With “AlmereOntwapent”, the city council is calling on people from Almere to speak out against the possession and use of weapons.

In recent months, the city has been shaken by several serious incidents involving the use of weapons. In August, a stabbing took the life of a resident of the city. In addition, there has been a large series of violent state robberies.

Mayor Franc Weerwind: „Possession and use of weapons is not normal. I think it is very important that we discuss this with each other. That parents talk to children about the risks and dangers of weapons. But also teachers with students, young people among themselves, professionals with clients and supervisors and enforcers with citizens. In Almere everyone must feel safe on the street, during the day and at night. That is why we call on the Almerees to speak out openly against possession of weapons. ”

Well-known people from Almere
Well-known people from Almere such as Tanja Jess, Ali B, Remy Bonjasky and Jörgen Raymann have joined the campaign. In addition, various key figures such as youth workers, police officers and enforcers openly speak out against gun possession.

The public campaign is part of the approach to juvenile crime of the municipality of Almere, a collaboration between care, education and security.

The approach focuses on identifying and tackling risky behavior in good time in order to prevent the behavior of young people from developing into serious nuisance or criminal behavior. The campaign is distributed through the council’s social media channels.
