Map and Short of Dutch Street Gangs
In one of Europe’s smallest countries, a densely populated country that has over 17 million people living in a place the size of the state of New Jersey, resides multiple Netherlands gangs, criminal organizations, and affiliations.
As the natives account for over 70 percent of the population, for many decades there have been communities of Surinamese, Curaçaoans, Turks, Moroccans, and other ethnicities living within the borders of the Netherlands. While the Netherlands has a large presence of biker gangs, many with a European background, the country’s minority population has a small percentage of their community within the local street and neighborhood gangs.
Netherlands like the Eight Tray Gangster Crips and East Side Crips, who have been around since the 1990s, but also the Kloekhorststraat Gang of the Bijlmer neighborhood or the Hopi Boys of the Hoptille community, the Rollin 200 Crips, and several biker gangs like the Bandidos Motorcycle Club, No Surrender Motorcycle Club, Satudarah Motorcycle Club, and Caloh Wagoh Motorcycle Club.
Hard to pinpoint a precise location for biker gangs, but most Netherlands gangs are located in low-income housing complexes, especially ones on the outskirts of Amsterdam, like the Amsterdam Nieuw-West, home to the Slotervaart neighborhood, and Amsterdam-Zuidoost, home to the neighborhood of Bijlmermeer.
Today’s Dutch gangs correlates with the country’s drill music scene, which is highlighted below. While there is a presence of criminal organizations and major narcotics distributors, the street gangs of the Netherlands are mostly at the bottom of the totem pole and are not as impactful as one may think.
