Coup de theater: while the police prefect Didier Lallement announced in July the dissolution of the Seine-Saint-Denis Security and Intervention Company (CSI 93) after a wave of scandals involving several of its police, he backpedals.
CSI 93 - of which four agents are still under investigation - will not be abolished.
This Friday evening, the prefecture of police of Paris declares, about the 150 agents based in Aulnay-sous-Bois, that "the dissolution of this unit, which will pass by its reconstitution with the personnel not implicated, will be completed in the plan administrative when the reform of the CSI in the inner suburbs is successful.
This will be the case at the next interdepartmental technical committee during which the new device will be presented.
Despite the announcement of its dissolution, the sulphurous police unit CSI 93 is running "at full speed"

But the rest of the workforce, apart from the four men involved, will not change.
Neither the premises, which will remain those of Aulnay-sous-Bois.
The chiefdom could however be attached to Paris.
Always in the viewfinder of the IGPN
A pre-committee is to take place this Monday, and the final decision should be recorded on December 5.

Because since the summer, the CSI 93 is in the sights of the IGPN.
Six police officers were arrested on June 29.
Four are indicted for forgery in public writing, willful violence per person
custodian of public authority, theft and transport of narcotics.
They were suspended.

Scandal of the CSI 93: "These police officers could make hundreds of euros per month on the money of the deal"
The first CSI was created in 2003, at the instigation of Nicolas Sarkozy, then Minister of the Interior.
As their name suggests, they are sent to respond to urban violence in the cities.
Its GSO (operational support group) is the equivalent of a mini-Raid and assists the police during delicate arrests.
