Community police return

Community police officers are to be reintroduced to the streets after being disbanded in 2003, as part of a campaign promise by President Macron for 10,000 more police to improve daily security.

The so-called police de proximité will be local ‘ears on the ground’ and will not be involved in full police work other than keeping tabs on criminal and possible radical activity.

It is part of a structural reform of the police and gendarme service that may see technical and scientific units combined and police freed from administrative tasks.
