In 2018 Amnesty International Belgium decided to do some research into ethnic profiling by interrogating police officers. 48 police officers of nine different police forces agreed to be interviewed. Although 20 participants explicitly stated they are against ethnic profiling, 24 police officers admitted the phenomenon exists. Amnesty International therefore concludes that more attention should be paid to ethnic profiling in Belgium and that there is a need for transparency by making registration obligatory.
