KPN and Vodafone remove phones from shops after robberies

KPN is emptying the majority of its telephone shops in and around Amsterdam, a total of about nine, due to constant robberies at their branches.

With the intervention, the telecom company wants to send a ‘social signal’ hand off. “Hopefully this is a temporary measure, but we will continue to do this until the safety of our employees is guaranteed.”

Last Thursday, the KPN branch on Amsterdam’s Bijlmerplein was violently robbed for the second time in a week. This already happened at the T-Mobile phone shop on Bijlmerplein.

Vodafone is following KPN’s example for branches with an increased risk of robbery.

Customers can therefore not immediately walk out with a new device. These are now being sent. In a number of cases, KPN has introduced a further door policy whereby a customer must first ring the bell to be let in.
