May each of you here be thanked for your commitment. We all know that vigilance must not be relaxed in these tumultuous times, as the drama of Strasbourg’s Christmas market recently so cruelly recalled. I measure, believe it well, the increase of the charges which results for you “.

A trend that continues in 2018 with a decrease of 11.36% for general delinquency and 35.29% for delinquency of public road.

The Director of Public Security then presented the figures revealing the strengthening of the Administrative Police in 2018, in line with the “Public Security 2020” plan, including:
