Police officers in reflective vest are "incredibly shocked" by the liquidation of a colleague in the middle of the streets of Paris. "We know that terrorism exists and that the police as victim may be. But see image that a colleague is murdered, it is shocking and has great impact."
"We have to police the motto we always come home safely at the end of our service. And now you see that violence does come very close. It is not our intention to make use agents as a target," said the chairman of the works of police Frank with reflective jacket.
"A fellow does not have to ride behind a car that runs the risk of being shot with a Kalashnikov. There is therefore fear, but there is also a courage colleague to move forward when needed."
Safety Vest on desk
For now, all police units "round tables" between agents and their managers about their own safety. What is needed about how the police are now patrolling the street and whether the agent at the police must keep his safety vest? The outcome of these discussions is expected next week, says the council.
The corps headed by the National Police recognizes that there is unrest among officers, but also at home.
