do Not be surprised if you soon have a politiecombi of the zone Lanaken-Maasmechelen see driving around with an agent from Maastricht behind the wheel. The two police districts with the most number of border crossings go a extended cooperation with the Maastricht police.
these are the zones with the territory of Maasmechelen in Riemst. “This fits especially in tackling drug-related crime", says Marino Keulen (Open Vld) mayor of Lanaken. “That's the biggest problem here in our border region. We are now a fist at, and pick up the imaginary ‘grensmuren’ way.”
