The Berlin police academy is lowering standards for some new recruits in order to enable more migrants to join the force, according to German media.
An anonymous whistleblower identified as officer "Lee Roy" leveled the shocking claim in a recent interview.
"Of course it’s well known that the Berlin police are in need of personnel, and that’s why they’re trying to employ anyone at this time, and so they turn a blind eye," says Roy.
"They want to raise the migrant quota working for the Berlin Police," he asserts. "This is deliberately political, and so there is pressure from the top to the bottom."
"And so they had to think about: how do we get more migrants into the agency when they can’t master the current tests? So they were given a memo with the answers on it, so they could pass the tests in any case."
Roy claims that some applicants take pictures of the test questions and post them online or on WhatsApp.
He also says some recruits who fail the exams are allowed to take them over and over until they pass.
When asked to address the allegations, police spokesman Thomas Neuendorf expressed his frustration that "anonymous" whistleblowers are "putting accusations into the world" that are "very, very hard to rebut."
He said concerned individuals such as Lee Roy should "explain these problems" to academy leadership – a move Roy believes would be the end of an officer's career.
When asked about increasing the 'migrant component' of the police force, Neuendorf denied the existence of 'quotas,' but added that they do indeed employ migrants who can use their understanding of foreign languages and cultures to 'defuse' many incidents.
Neuendorf acknowledged that while exam takers are forbidden from bringing study aids or electronics into testing rooms, it is very possible that they might do so anyways.
"You’ll see the consequences of this in four or five years on the streets, of what’s happening right now," Roy warns.
