Only a few countries, like Germany, the Czech Republic, and the Netherlands, publish such data separately.

Cases such as shootings of individuals from minority backgrounds and violent incidents, like those involving Roma boys in Greece, highlight the issue.

It also calls for more diverse police forces and emphasizes the need for independent police oversight.
