 EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAMME IN THE ROYAL NETHERLANDS MARECHAUSSEE
Together with the Royal Netherlands Navy, Army and Air Force, the Royal Marechaussee forms part of the Dutch armed forces and is thus a police organization with military status.
In the Netherlands, however, there is insufficient guarantee of such support, and the question arose as to whether the Marechaussee should organize an EAP in the same way as, for example, other police organizations.
It appears that Royal Marechaussee personnel experience an average of 5.5 incidents in the course of their career, as opposed to 14 in the case of a police official (Carlier et al., 1994).

It seems somewhat singular that the steamer "Curaçao," of the Royal Netherlands Navy, which, it will be seen crossed the Atlantic several times in 1827-28-29, has, outside of her own country, received practically no recognition from the various authors of works on steam navigation.
This vessel was intended to depend wholly upon her machinery, and measured 830 tons, 176 feet long, 271½ feet beam, and had side-lever engines of 200 nominal horsepower, built by Boulton and Watt of London and put in by Bennett and Henderson of Montreal.
The "Royal William" plied upon her route regularly until 1833, when, owing to indifferent financial results, it was determined to sell her.

The start of the world war in May 1940 caught the Dutch navy in the middle of reconstruction, as many modern ships were at the dockyard.
However, with the old ships in service, augmented by ships completed in the UK and ships taken over from the Royal Navy, the RNN played an important role in the early war years, when every man and ship available was most important to help turn the tide.
After March 1942, the Navy was able to take over several larger ships to augment her potential, but the numbers never replaced the war losses.
