The Elysee had set the tone by promising "substantial" measures.
Seven months after the first exchanges, it is Emmanuel Macron in person who closes this Tuesday in Hauts-de-France the vast consultation of the Beauvau of security.
In a speech at the Roubaix National Police School on Tuesday noon, and after having defended at length his record in terms of security, the Head of State announced a range of measures intended to respond to the weakened confidence between a party French people as well as a certain "loss of meaning" that some law enforcement officers might feel.
"Security is everyone's business, a co-construction, a common good," defends the Head of State.
The French expect us to be efficient, close, responsive and responsible.
It is because "all is not going well" that the President of the Republic has promised a radical answer on "the criminal procedure" and the "long time".
Regarding the first part, Emmanuel Macron intends to combat formalism and cumbersome procedures.
He began by announcing the implementation of fixed fines for the illegal occupation of land by travelers and for that of the halls of buildings.
He asked his Minister of Justice for an assessment of all the measures taken to improve the work of justice.
Eric Dupont-Moretti will have three months to formulate proposals which should therefore serve the program of Emmanuel Macron in 2022. In this context, the President of the Republic asks his minister for "drastic simplification of investigation frameworks" and "the generalization of summary reports for petty crimes ”.

Regarding the second part, the "long time", Emmanuel Macron announces a programming law for internal security. "The goal is to think about the police and the gendarmerie of 2030". Training, equipment, "the field has never been so vast," he continues. It is Gérald Darmanin who is this time in charge of proposing his law at the beginning of the year 2022.
Emmanuel Macron has set two clear ambitions, which he says would be those of the French: "more blue on the ground".
He promises to double the presence of police and gendarmes on public roads within ten years.
It may be necessary to create positions, he concedes.
But the President of the Republic offers to free up time for law enforcement officers.
The hourly cycles no longer correspond to the needs of the field.
The new hourly cycles will have to be finalized by next January.
Appointments and transfers will have to be made according to the needs of the field.
Another novelty: the president announced the generalization of online complaints from 2023, and no longer just pre-complaints.
Beating of Michel Zecler
The Beauvau, punctuated for seven months by eight round tables - on the theme of training, supervision or even video capture - was launched after the beating of Michel Zecler, black music producer, in November 2020 in Paris .
After this case, Emmanuel Macron had recognized the existence of facial checks and violence on the part of the police.
Statements that made the police unions scream.
Beauvau had been decided to respond to their anger.
