 militarisation police ENG

  • Over the last few years, French law enforcement forces have received an increasing amount of military equipment. The prevailing idea in both public debate and government policies is that ‘security’ is achieved solely through military responses has been associated with a growing militarisation of policing in France.
  • Militarisation inevitably leads to an escalation of violence. The easy availability of weapons, whether at local/national/European levels, increases the chances that these weapons will be (mis)used. As of November 2019, a year of ‘yellow jacket’ demonstrations saw 2 deaths, 316 head injuries, 25 mutilated, 5 dismembered hands and thousands of other injured protesters.
