Peter Rodrigues on discrimination and racism at the Rotterdam Police Department

Once again, excuses were offered by the Rotterdam Police Department following a racist incident, and a guarantee of better behaviour in future. The reason was an arrest in which excessive force was used and a person involved was called an offensive, racist name by an officer.

Peter Rodrigues, Professor of Immigration Law at Leiden Law School, spoke about the incident on Dutch news programme EenVandaag, in particular about the new plans by the police in the Netherlands to tackle discrimination and exclusion, and about changing the culture within the police force.
