One year almost to the day after receiving the police unions at the Elysée palace, François Hollande, has reproduced the year, Wednesday, October 26, at the end of the day. The contexts of crisis in which these hearings to the presidential register follow and resemble each other with, as the starting point of the wrath of the forces of law and order, the violent assault of a police officer. This year, he is a deputy of security at Viry-Châtillon (Essonne) ; in 2015, it was a member of a brigade tasked with fighting crime (BAC) during a shootout in Seine-Saint-Denis.
The crisis of 2015 had not given birth to a revolution, but it had led to the signing of a protocol envisaging measures from claims and progress statutory height of several hundred million euros. An envelope that had come on top in the recruitment and blows of thumb budget is already committed by the government.
whenever there is a crisis, its policy response. On Wednesday, the interior minister, Bernard Cazeneuve, has unveiled a plan to public safety. Because if the intelligence services or the specialized units have already seen the reinforcements of staff or equipment to arrive, especially after the attacks of 13 November 2015, the police who work on the public roads and in police stations is found more in rest. Yet it is almost half of the 150 000 members of the national police.
police officers complain of ” undue “
The new plan includes the removal of tasks say ” undue “, of which the police hold complain to the envi. The government intends to remove the guards, static of the prefectures, which relate to a quarantine site today, and those of about fifty courts to be replaced by technical devices or of private security. This would free up the equivalent of 221 posts of police officers.
The government also wants to move forward, in agreement with the chancellery, on the medical care of persons in state of intoxication. The goal is that it can be done directly in the police stations, in order to avoid that the police officers had to lead the people to the hospital to obtain a certificate of non-admission before you can place them in a cell sobering up. These are the doctors who should move.
The success of these measures among police officers will greatly depend on their actual implementation. The numbers are already tormented by the missions of transfer of inmates and for the custody of inmates hospitalized, gradually taken over by the prison administration, but which still weighed on their business.
The plan of public security also includes physical measures. The companies departmental intervention should be getting the same reinforcements in equipment than those released to the TRAY after the attacks of 2015 : an assault rifle, helmets, ballistic and bulletproof vests, door-plate. The crews of police aid should, for their part, receive shields and flexible ballistic vests, bullet-proof door-plate. And, as had been announced, Sunday, October 23, Jean-Marc Falcone, the director general of the national police – echoing, in reality, measures are already known, the machine pistol Beretta and the Flash-Ball, must be replaced by new equipment.

This vehicle legislative should also be the occasion to align, as well as the claim of the police unions, the suppression of the outrages to persons agent of the public authority (six months), that of insulting a magistrate (a year).
