Abstract:The main interest of this paper is whether adolescents with a non-German ethnic appearance are treated differently by the police than adolescents with a German ethnic appearance. To investigate whether that is the case two research questions have been asked. The first research question is: “To what extent are adolescents with a non-German ethnic appearance more likely to experience police contacts than adolescents with a German ethnic appearance?” The second research question is: “To what extent is the effect of ethnic appearance of adolescents on police contact moderated by the socioeconomic status of the city district?” Both questions are empirical research questions with an explanatory character. To answer them a crosssectional research design has been used. As the focus of the research is set on equal treatment of adolescents by the police the units of observation have been adolescents. A survey has been conducted in which quantitative data have been gathered. The originated data have been analyzed to test the hypotheses stated and to answer the research questions.
