Police say AID has become quieter

No first years ended up in the drunken cell at the police station in Wageningen during this AID. ‘It’s getting ‘softer’ and that’s how it should be,’ says station sergeant Herbert Barneveld.

‘We used to say jokingly, first year students who end up in the drunkards’ cell won’t get their degree. If they are so drunk that they can’t remember where they live, we have to let them sleep it off in the cell. This year we haven’t had any. Up to now they have behaved themselves,’ said the duty officer on Monday. There were no emergency admissions at the hospital in Ede either. / JT
