“Uncertainty” in Nantes: Darmanin and Rolland announce reinforcements and cameras
Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin and Mayor of Nantes Johanna Rolland (PS) were announced Tuesday on Place Beauvau after several violent incidents in the city, police reinforcements and the installation of new video surveillance cameras to fight “the ‘unsafe'”.
“In view of the serious insecure situation in Nantes,” the minister and the mayor “have agreed on a joint plan to strengthen resources,” they write in a joint press release.
In particular, the Minister of the Interior decided on “the temporary deployment of a mobile unit”, i.e. “around 70 agents”, from October 10th. It will be “particularly affected in the city center and in the sensitive” districts.
The Minister also recalled that a new CRS unit, envisaged in the future Planning, Orientation and Programming Law of the Ministry of the Interior (Lopmi), will be installed in Nantes in 2023. Of the 200 police officers who make up this unit, 80 will be “specifically dedicated to the Nantes agglomeration”.
Gérald Darmanin has also committed to “finance up to 50%” for the installation of cameras in the city. While Johanna Rolland has promised to have “250 cameras” installed in the city by the end of her term, compared to 146 today.
The mayor also pledged to “hire 50 additional city police officers” who will work “until 2 a.m.”
At the end of September, the city of Nantes was the scene of various events, including the rape of a woman in the city center, for which two Sudanese were arrested in a regular situation.
Last Saturday, 900 people marched through the city to say, “Stop the insecurity,” according to the prefecture.
