Police officers in plain clothes will begin patrolling the streets of Brussels on 8 March. In this way, law enforcement officers will fight against sexual harassment against women.

The introduction of this measure was confirmed by the burgomaster of the capital of Belgium Philippe Clos. Police spokesman Olivier Sloss clarified that law enforcement officers will first pay special attention to public transport stops.

Last year, we began training employees on how to identify street harassment, how to care for victims of such actions, and how to draw up protocols,”a police spokesman told Belga.

According to Sloss, law enforcement officers receive a lot of evidence that women face harassment in public places, but in a significant number of cases they choose not to report it.

The Belgian prosecutor's office promises to pay special attention to harassment offenses. The supervisor is going to review the incoming protocols faster, but also more thoroughly.

As NEWS.ru previously reported, the popular American blogger and doctor Jason Campbell (aka Tik Tok Doc) was sued for harassment. The plaintiff demands $ 45 million. The blogger was accused of harassment by a woman with whom they worked together at a medical center in Portland. According to her, he sent her pornographic photos and obscene texts.
