Scholz in favor of racism study in police force

Federal finance minister olaf scholz (SPD) has spoken out in favor of a study on racism in the police force.

"I think a study like this makes sense and we need to find a framework in which it can happen," the SPD candidate for chancellor and current vice chancellor told the "augsburger allgemeine" newspaper. "My conviction is that this will help the police."

Earlier, interior minister horst seehofer (CSU) had confirmed his "no" to a corresponding study. "A study that deals exclusively with the police and the accusation of structural racism within the police will not take place with me," seehofer emphasized to the "bild am sonntag" newspaper.

Months ago, seehofer commissioned the constitutional protection agency to draw up a situation report on right-wing extremism in the security agencies by the end of september. His refusal to also entrust scientists with the study of racist attitudes in the police met with criticism, not only from politicians of the SPD, the left-wing party and the greens.
