Abstract:The emphasis of this study was to find if and why non-Dutch youths have more proactive police contacts than Dutch youths. Disproportionality in proactive police contact may not only result from unequal treatment of ethnic minorities but also from justifiable distinctions made by the police. Differences in the number of proactive police contacts can for instance result from differences in socioeconomic status, availability on the streets and from individual and group delinquency. These factors might justify that ethnic minority youths experience more proactive police contacts.
