By concluding, from Roubaix, seven months of work of the “Beauvau of security”, Emmanuel Macron did not only intend to take back control of the security file. He also, on the occasion of a real Prévert-style inventory, ticked almost all the boxes of police demands, to the point of arousing the enthusiasm of Fabien Vanhemelryck, boss of the Alliance union, notoriously critical of the President of the Republic. “It is in line with our expectations, he responded to all our requests, we say banco”, welcomed the union leader, as soon as the presidential statement was completed.
“It’s true, it was a generally attractive speech”, adds Patrice Ribeiro, head of the Synergies officers’ union, also satisfied with the abandonment of the project to create an independent control body for the police – an idea however put forward by Gérald Darmanin during the Beauvau de Security.

Because the promises only engage those who believe in them, especially during an election period ”.
“More blue on the ground”, simplification of the criminal procedure, credits in clear increase, police wardrobe brought up to date… The President of the Republic left no question unanswered, at the risk of contradiction. Among the rare voices to denounce a “Pure campaign speech”, Anthony Caillé, national secretary of the CGT-Police, castigates a “President who wants to simplify the criminal procedure to free up working time and generalize the fixed tort fine for illegal occupations of land by travelers and kids who squat in building lobbies, a task which will occupy the police for few results “.

Starting with the training of peacekeepers, extended to twelve months from 1er January 2022, and which could include preparation for the competitive examination of judicial police officer, which requires five months of courses. “It is a very difficult exam, not always within the reach of a 19 or 20 year old student without university background, and it would reduce school time to seven months, to the detriment of other learning more useful to the caretakers. peace at this stage of their career ”, decrypts a union source.
