Macron wants “independent control” of the action of the police – Liberation

On the eve of a trip by Emmanuel Macron to close the Beauvau of security, the Elysee distills the presidential announcements. In the line of sight, the work of the IGPN, more and more criticized.

Emmanuel Macron must announce Tuesday in Roubaix a “Reinforcement of the control of the action of the police forces” in response to recurring criticisms aimed at the current Inspectorate General of the National Police (IGPN), the police force, we learned from the Elysee on Monday. The Head of State must close in the North Beauvau of security, a vast consultation intended to improve the conditions of exercise of the profession of police officer, by a series of announcements “Substantial”, we added from the same source.

The number of judicial investigations entrusted by the justice to the IGPN has increased very sharply in recent years while the service lost at the same time 4.6% of its staff, in 2020. Several high-profile cases have placed the police in police in the hot seat in recent years, especially with the movement of yellow vests.

In its report for 2020, published last July, the IGPN also listed for the first time the deaths during police operations and no longer a gross figure: 32 deaths occurred in 2020 during a police mission, whose circumstances are specified. This census “Is not intended to speculate on the legitimacy of actions”, then demined the IGPN. Regarding defense bullet launchers (LBD), the IGPN counts 7,275 ammunition fired in 2020. This figure is down sharply compared to the years 2018 (19,071) and 2019 (10,785) but remains much higher than in previous years .
