This article addresses the perceptions and experiences of young ethnic minorities in Oslo and their frequent encounters with the police at the high schools they attend in the eastern and southern suburbs. These police meetings are mainly aimed at preventing crime, such as drugs at schools, and building trust with students and staff. Scholars, however, have debated how frequent controls and policing in more deprived areas inhabited by a large proportion of minorities can have negative effects on procedural justice. In this article, I demonstrate that the youth attending these schools can experience fear, stigma and injustice in the heavy presence of police on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. I argue that these encounters between youth and the police are key to address in order to inform our understanding of mistrust towards the police and challenge strategies of policing.
