Germany: 'There are occasional discipline problems' — Police spokesperson after offensive messages emerge Police spokesperson Thomas Neuendorf admitted that there are occasional discipline problems at the Berlin Police Academy after an audio message and an anonymous letter criticising police students with foreign backgrounds was shared with the media, Friday. «Occasionally there are discipline... Еще problems. These are young people who are fresh out of school and sometimes they don't behave properly. However, the school is also there to educate them,» explained Neuendorf outside the Training Academy in Berlin. Speaking to the media, the spokesperson also stressed that he found it 'sad' that students had been 'tarred with the same brush,' especially those of foreign backgrounds. He added that 'rash allegations' had also been made. «We have to be very careful that we do not discriminate here just because someone has the surname of a well-known extended family, it does not mean that the person is a criminal, we have no prejudices,» Neuendorf explained. At the end of his press briefing he granted the media short-term access to the facility.
