Do police pass on personal data without permission? In Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, at least, some things point to this. Kay Bolick of Lobbi, the statewide victim counseling service "Assistance and Information for Victims of Right-Wing Violence," knows of cases. Most recently, a woman turned to Lobbi. She had reported a racist incident to the police and then got an unpleasant phone call. "It wasn’t a long conversation," Bolick says. But the message to the woman called was clear, he says. Explosive: The caller must have gotten the contact information, Bolick says, from the police.
