This campaign, entitled “You are made to be a police officer” and available in three clips broadcast on radio, television and on the Internet, is aimed “more particularly at 18-25 year olds with the aim of revealing to them the many common points which connect them to the national police without their being really aware of it”, underlines the institution in a press release.

Candidates admitted will undergo a one-year training in school, followed by a 12-month internship period in a police service.
