Flashing lights and sirens


12 Police cars from all over Europe, drove in a parade through The Hague city center on Saturday 5 June. Two of them were especially designed for the occasion by Ontwerpwerk (The Hague) and Fuenfwerken (Berlin). Police cars from Poland, Portugal, Finland, Germany, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Luxembourg drove all the way from their own country for this occasion. Saturday afternoon they went in procession under the guidance of motor officers from Politie Haaglanden. Starting off from the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague, crossing the Peace Palace to the Plein. Once arrived, the police cars were lined up in a semicircle. Cars and officers were photographed, children were allowed in the cars and the siren and flashing lights went on regularly. The officers were welcomed by Secretary-General Ton Annink of the Ministry of Defence. On the steps of the Ministry, a group picture was made with all agents and the Secretary-General, in the foreground the two cars with the specially designed striping for a European police car.
