  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Is the French police facing a crisis of confidence?” – below is their description.

    Historically, the relationship between the French people and the French police has been testy, but in recent years there’s been a downward spiral, which begs the question: is the French police facing a crisis of confidence? This spike in mistrust comes amidst public fury over a new security bill deemed a danger to civil liberties. President Emmanuel Macron says there’s an urgent need to reform France’s security forces: from their working conditions to community relations. He’s promised to beef up trust between the French and their police. But is it too late?
