In an interview given to the newspaper The Parisian, the Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, draws up the roadmap of the former Secretary of State and man of intelligence, appointed Wednesday in the Council of Ministers, Laurent Nuñez. He replaces the prefect Didier Lallement and will be installed at the Paris police headquarters this Thursday. In his roadmap, Gérald Darmanin notably announces the creation of 500 new police positions for Paris over the next two years.
He promises up to a thousand more police officers in the next five years in the capital and its inner suburbs. 500 new cameras should also be installed on public roads, in addition to the existing ones which will be modernized.

Incidentally, by thus fixing in the press the roadmap of the new prefect of police, Gérald Darmanin intends to assert his authority over a powerful institution which has, in the past, been more accountable to the Élysée than to its own ministry. of guardianship.
