SECURITY: The gendarmerie is looking for "referents" at Concordia


"Citizen participation" is an approach established by the gendarmerie at the national level in 2006. "We ask the population to participate in the co-production of security on their territory", explains lieutenant-colonel of gendarmerie Sébastien Manzoni who wished to put set up this approach in Saint-Martin. The primary objective is "to create proximity, a stronger bond with the inhabitants", he specifies.

Concordia was chosen to launch the device. “Their role as residents is to warn us, to report situations that worry them. And thanks to this information, we will be able to better orient our patrols and our interventions, ”explains Captain Thierry Verres, captain of the gendarmerie. So-called “referents” will be identified to communicate with the police.

The ideal would be to have thirty referents. The device will be presented at a public meeting Thursday at 18 p.m. at the CCISM in Concordia.
