Student cop wants to be mediator

Paul Vermin, 'student cop' since last May, wants to be a mediator between students and the city. He thinks there is a lot of room for improvement in the relationship between the students and Maastricht. “At the moment, it is still often we –the people from Maastricht – and they – the students.” As far as he is concerned, the key word is discussion.

To have a good relationship, the city and the students must show goodwill. Vermin feels that students and associations must be active in the neighbourhoods and city as a whole. “Attend district meetings, take a seat in neighbourhood platforms, set up your own student party.” On the other hand, the city must show itself to be a good host. “For example, there are far too few attended bicycle parking possibilities. The university could also play a role here, by providing proper parking for bicycles at the faculties.”

More can also be done in the line of prevention and providing information. “Later on, I will be going to the Guesthouse for an information evening, where I will give a presentation to foreign students about safety and the tasks of the police in the Netherlands.” Students can reach Vermin via
