How police in the Brussels region is operating in different independent regulated zones : no unified police operations are possible and communication between zone patrols is kind of ‘ gentlemen’s agreement’.


There are six police zones in the Brussels-Capital Region. Each one covers several communes and has its own police regulations:

Police zone 5339: Brussels City and Ixelles

Police zone Brussels-West 5340: Molenbeek-Saint-Jean, Koekelberg, Jette, Ganshoren and Berchem-Sainte-Agathe

Police zone Midi 5341: Anderlecht, Saint-Gilles and Forest

Police zone 5342: Uccle, Watermael-Boitsfort and Auderghem

Police zone Montgomery 5343: Etterbeek, Woluwe-Saint-Pierre and Woluwe-Saint-Lambert

Police zone 5344: Schaerbeek, Saint-Josse-ten-N

Compared to that the brussels terrorist have a perfect integrated system to hop form different places  e.g. Schaarbeek en Forest
