Station area

Thousands and thousands of people find their way in the station area every day. Commuters, passers-by, office workers, tourists and day trippers, shoppers. However, the appeal of this area also has a dark side: the area is also attractive to people with less good intentions, which affects the quality of life in this area. Due to its central location, nuisance offenders sometimes gather here, whether or not in groups. There may be drug nuisance, but also shoplifting and pickpockets.
