St. Maarten – The Gendarmes and the Dutch police kept a joint general control on Friday night. The controls were carried out at Coralita/Oyster Bay, Belvedere/French Quarter, Union road/Belle View and Cupecoy and Low Lands; the four main border crossings between both sides of the island.

During the controls more than two hundred cars were checked. A total of 40 fines were given on the Dutch side and five cars were towed because they were not in proper working condition.

Chief Commissioner of the Dutch Police, Peter de Witte visited the locations at Union road/Belle View where he met members from the gendarmes in charge of the control on the French Side.

More joint controls are to be held throughout the rest of the year to further strengthen the working relationship between both sides of the island.
