Territorial delegates in matters of security ethics
Since 2018 September the 1st, 44 delegates in the field of security ethics are responsible for ensuring through the amicable settlement, the processing of files concerning refusals to register a complaint or inappropriate remarks concerning representatives of the police or gendarmerie.
The generalization of this service follows a period of experimentation initiated in 2015, the results of which proved very positive for all the actors since it allows an amicable response, of proximity and in a fast time.
From now on, a person who believes that he or she has been the victim of a refusal to register a complaint or inappropriate remarks by a police officer or the national gendarmerie, can turn to the delegate of the Defender of rights who will directly deal with through the mediation process or will forward it to the territorially competent delegate.
Specialized delegates in the field of security ethics are present in all the regions, metropolitan and overseas.
These delegates are specifically trained on this issue and are bound, like all territorial delegates of the Defender of Rights, to an obligation of confidentiality and impartiality. This mission of the referential territorial delegates is added to their traditional missions and is part of a process of settling disputes and consultation with local authorities.
