Who is the NCTV?

Around 200 staff work alongside the National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism (NCTV), Pieter-Jaap Aalbersberg. The work of the office of the NCTV is built around various programmes, allowing staff to respond to relevant social trends. In addition to the programmes, the office of the NCTV is subdivided into units, which carry out the organisation’s ‘permanent tasks’, i.e. those duties that are independent of whatever is taking place in society at large.
