MUNICH (September 15, 2016) – The Minister of Security and Justice, Ard van der Steur, presented the Politiekeurmerk Veilig Wonen (PKVW) prizes during the CCV Safe Living Day 2016 held on Wednesday, 14 September. The prizes for the best PKVW companies went to Tegen Inbraak from The Hague, Van Rumpt Specialisten from Utrecht and Zone 3 from Amsterdam. The most innovative PKVW product in 2016 is a combination of a fastener and sturdy restrictor for use on windows, the AXA Oyster from AXA Home Security, a brand of Allegion.
A total of 700,000 homes in the Netherlands have the Police Hallmark at the moment. The affiliated PKVW companies visit tens of thousands of homes every year to give the residents advice and to take security measures in order to reduce the number of house burglaries. Minister Van der Steur: "The number of house burglaries has dropped sharply by 14 percent in respect to last year. A reduction this big is a great achievement for which our public and private partners cooperated well with each other." According to the minister, this reduction shows that public-private connections work and that they could lead to even better results.

The public could vote to determine the most innovative product during the Safe Living Day.
