Anyone can take part in the fight against drug trafficking starting this Wednesday.
The Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin announces the opening of a platform allowing everyone to report to the police and the gendarmerie the points of deal located near his home.
The system is already in place to allow each citizen to report.
The process is accessible on the site "moncommissariat.fr" and, for the gendarmerie zone, on "my digital brigade", specifies the Ministry of the Interior.
The reports will then be sent to the police and gendarmes concerned, adds Place Beauvau.
👉 1,388 traffics were dismantled, an increase of + 35.3% compared to December.
👉 1,496 traffickers were brought to justice.
Thank you to the security forces for their mobilization!
