When applying for this vacancy, he knew the stakes were high. Thierry Verres, former captain of the gendarmerie and deputy to the command of the Saint-Martin company, rubbed shoulders with the territorial police in the field for four years. He knew its flaws, however, he wished to become its new director.
“I am very proud to be your new director,” he assured the 34 agents when he took office on February 1. “And we will grow together.” Through this new responsibility, Thierry Verres wants to "bring his contribution to the population and the territory" that he welcomed after Irma. "It's a way for me to give back what he gave me, to bring something to the territory," he says.
His main desire is to "reorganize" the territorial police so that it can provide work recognized by the citizens and "to increase technical and operational skills". First of all, training is organised, “there hasn't been one for ten years!”, notes Thierry Verres, also aware of the need to set up a “real framework”. "There is real potential but it is untapped," he said.
