Opinion on the prevention of abusive and/or discriminatory identity check practices

Opinion on the prevention of abusive and/or discriminatory identity check practices

The CNCDH issues a list of recommandations to improve the regulations and monitoring of practices of identity check practices and on wider scale to help improving the relation between the population and police officers.

The National Consultative Commission on Human Rights (CNCDH) is fully aware of the difficult conditions in which law enforcement officials work in their accomplishment of a crucial public service mission on a daily basis - that of protecting and guaranteeing public safety and people’s rights. The observations that follow aim to do no more than offer up ideas for discussing how to protect people’s rights in practice, improve relations between the police and the population and achieve more effective policing.

The aim is to draw public authorities’ attention to the need to take a more level-headed and objective approach to debating the abuses of this practice (I), and to improve its regulation and monitoring (II).
