    According to information obtained from the Rheinische Post, even the lockers of the officers were searched.

    Policemen keep lockers not only for work-related things, but also for their private items. During the search, the report said the search was aimed at finding more incriminating material that might indicate a right-wing attitude.

    The reason for the raid resulting in the invasion of privacy, was a sticker with the words “Fight back! It is your country!” The sticker was in the black-and-yellow colours of the Identitarian Movement and was attached to the inside of the sun visor of a team car. A visual of the sticker was spread on Twitter after an “anti-right-wing” demonstration.

    The Duisburg police confirmed shortly afterwards: “Internal investigations which had been initiated immediately, had shown that in a car of the Duisburg police unit, the Einsatzhundertschaft such a sticker was attached. This was confiscated and submitted to the prosecutor for review as to criminal relevance.”

    Police chief Elke Bartels condemned the attachment of the sticker. “Racist ideas have no place in the ranks of the police and will not be tolerated. We take this incident very seriously and will investigate every detail!”

    The Identity Movement is regarded by the German domestic spy agency as a “suspect” case.
