The past few years, safety has been an important issue in the Tweede Kamer. MPs have to be able to work in complete freedom and it has to be possible for everyone to attend a meeting or to take part in a guided tour.
The Security Department plays an vital part in all this. They are the first people you meet if you visit the Tweede Kamer. They are present in the entire building: both visibly and unseen from the central incident room. There is an intense cooperation with the messengers and the police.
