Working at the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee. A challenge that suits you?

What exactly does working for the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee (in Dutch: Koninklijke Marechaussee, hereinafter KMar) entail? What kind of prior training do you need and what is an average work week like? The Kmar is a unique organisation and is charged with different tasks in the Caribbean Netherlands. Together with its chain partners it makes great efforts to control the borders of Bonaire, Saba and St. Eustatius and to combat cross-border crime.

This sounds interesting but it still is a big question mark for many people what exactly this means. On this page we will provide insight into what exactly the work of a Border Police Task employee (in Dutch: medewerker Grenspolitietaken, hereinafter BPT employee) at the Marechaussee in Bonaire entails. Please read on and find out whether the work suits you too!

“I am proud that I can contribute to the safety which we all can enjoy in Bonaire.”- Joel Nieuwkerk, Senior Border Police Tasks employee of the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee in Bonaire
