Data on racial profiling needed: report

A new report has found Australian police forces must introduce data collection concerning what's known as "racial profiling", or risk further alienating ethnic communities. In Victoria, police claim they have "zero tolerance" for racial profiling, but have no method of accurately measuring whether the practice still takes place. Luke Waters reports.

Nineteen year-old law student Taj Mohamed is of Sudanese origin and regularly commutes on Melbourne's busy rail system.

 

Despite having no criminal record, Mr Mohamed says he is regularly stopped and questioned by police.
