Baden-Württemberg: Police in the southwest refused to participate in the study

Stuttgart (dpa / lsw) - The police in Baden-Württemberg are breaking out and boycotting a nationwide study on the experiences and attitudes of police officers. After a veto by the Main Staff Council, an online questionnaire from the German Police Academy is not distributed to the departments. A spokeswoman for the Ministry of the Interior confirmed the relevant information from the "Stuttgarter Zeitung" in Stuttgart on Tuesday. In most other federal states, the survey initiated by the federal government has already been completed or is currently underway. The spokeswoman said that nothing could be said about the reasons given by the main staff council.

The study goes back to the former Interior Minister Horst Seehofer (CSU), who responded to demands to investigate possible racism and legalism in the police force. However, the study was then laid out much more broadly. All interior ministers of the federal states support the research project.

State police chief Stefanie Hinz said that one wanted to gain insights into the following questions: "What motivates people to go to the police? How does the diverse but also challenging police profession shape the police officers? How do they deal with the stress?" Clarifying these questions is in the interest of the officials.
