big police operation in the United States district

Two people were arrested this Thursday at the end of the afternoon in the United States district in Lyon (8th), during a punch operation, known as the security of sensitive neighborhoods.

In a few minutes, nineteen police officers from the GSP (local security group) and the BST (specialized field brigade) from the 8th arrondissement and eight municipal police officers from the GOM (mobile operational group) were deployed on Boulevard des Etats-Unis, between rue Émile Combes and rue Théodore Lévigne. Objective: visit the common areas of buildings, carry out identity checks and road checks, and put pressure on delinquents.

“We should be there more often”

“We want to show honest people who live in sensitive neighborhoods that they are not abandoned”, explains Commander Jean-Pierre Merle, head of the 8th district police station. From her window, an elderly woman does not miss a beat of the show and hails the police to thank them for their presence.

A passerby, who has lived in the neighborhood for a long time, calls out to them. “We should be there more often” she regrets, referring to badly parked cars, in disabled places or firefighter access, people “who do not respect anything”.

During the operation, which lasted an hour, the police made seven visits to public areas and checked twenty-three pedestrians and seventeen cars. An individual was arrested for possession of a tear gas canister and a driver for lack of a driving license.
