Alliance PN meeting with President Hollande on the working conditions of security forces

The recent attack against French police officers in the department of Essonne highlights the mounting pressure and the increasing violence that the French law enforcement forces are exposed to. CESI Secretary General Klaus Heeger firmly condemns these attacks highlighting the importance of security forces, especially in this day and age where destabilisation of internal security within the EU is a growing threat.

In this context, CESI´s French members and colleagues from Alliance Police Nationale have met with the President of the French Republic Francois Hollande to further discuss urgent matters that complicate the work carried out around the clock by security officers.

“The exasperation is fully comprehensible, and CESI reiterates our support for amending and improving working conditions for the security forces. Our colleagues at Alliance Police Nationale have been battling the topic of legitimate defence and safe working conditions for French security officers for years and we not only support them at every step of the way but would like to see these issues being handled more seriously on the European level” Klaus Heeger said.

CESI encourages and supports the trade union movements, and reiterates that we need to protect the ones that are protecting us.
