In Seine-et-Marne, two mobile brigades have been announced in two rural areas, one in Nemours, in the south of the department on the border of Loiret and Yonne, and the other in Beton-Bazoches, in the east of the territory, on the border of the Marne department. Both will be installed in communities of communes of 30,000 and 35,000 inhabitants respectively.
In Beton-Bazoches, satisfaction predominates. "There are already firefighters, the village is quite well equipped. It's the return of community policing," appreciate Patrick and Claude, residents of the town of 950 inhabitants. "It will be easier for the elderly," adds Jean-Paul, another Bétonais. And if it allows them to intervene more quickly, that's good. »

Shopkeepers think of "people who don't have cars". And add: "But we are not the most to complain," highlighting the presence of the territorial brigades of Jouy-le-Châtel, 12 km to the west, and Villiers-Saint-Georges, 14 km to the east. "This new brigade should also reduce incivility," hopes Francis, victim, a decade ago, of several burglaries at his home near the N 4.
"Local elected officials were able to testify to the needs on their territory"
"This choice was not made at random since it results from a collaboration with local elected officials who were able to testify to the needs on their territory," decrypts Frédéric Lavigne, the chief of staff of the prefect of Seine-et-Marne.
"We have been working on it for a year with the mayor of Beton-Bazoches," confirms the president of the community of communes of Provinois, which has some 35,000 inhabitants and which includes the village choixi. For Olivier Lavenka (LR), this mobile brigade will fill "a hole in the racket of the police". "There will be six more gendarmes on the territory, who will be housed on site. As for the conditions of reception of the population, they remain to be specified. But this brigade will strengthen the presence of gendarmes along the National 4, where flight delinquency is more significant, "says the elected provinois.
"At this stage, we have no more information about the concrete implementation of these mobile brigades," says the prefect's right-hand man. "There is nothing defined. Will the gendarmes be on bicycles, cars or motorcycles? We do not know, "adds Alain Boullot (SE), the mayor of Beton-Bazoches, delighted that his municipality has been selected.
