Hoe werkt het?
How does it work?
Special investigative officers are deployed by organisations or by the police to maintain safety.
For example, there are special investigative officers deployed to maintain the parking policy. But also wildlife officers, environmental inspectors and school attendance officers are special investigative officers. A special investigative officer is allowed to arrest suspects and issuing fines.
However, a special investigative officer holds not the same responsibilities as the police force.
