FRA participated in a CEPOL webinar to introduce the challenges and principles linked to the use of profiling by law enforcement officers.

FRA introduced findings in relation to stop and search and trust in police from its EU minorities and discrimination survey.

It also provided an overview of the principles described in its guide on preventing unlawful profiling. OSF also introduced the results of their last report on stop and search tools for tracking and reporting profiling events.

Around 400 law enforcement officers from all EU Member States attended the webinar on 21 April. It was run by CEPOL, the EU agency for law enforcement training.
