Report an offence

You may report criminal offences taking place at Dutch airports and military sites to the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee.

If you have a citizen service number (BSN), you can apply for a DigiD at It is recommended to enable logging in with SMS verification as well. Using DigiD with SMS verification, you can report specific types of crime online, such as:

  • damage to property
  • failing to stop after an accident
  • theft

The online reporting forms are available in Dutch only and can be accessed here. If you do not understand Dutch and do not have someone to assist you with completing the form, please visit a Marechaussee location to report the crime.

All other crimes must be reported at a Marechaussee location. Ensure you bring your passport or another identification document.
