Arms vigil this Thursday at the Paris Labor Exchange. Alliance and UNSA police unions are meeting to prepare the professional elections to be held from 1 to 8 December. A total of 500 Parisian delegates went to rue du Château d’Eau (10th) to discuss with the general secretaries, Fabien Vanhemelryck and Olivier Varlet, the work areas that need to be developed to convince the more than 15,500 assigned police officers. to the intramural Paris.
“The goal is to convince as many colleagues as possible that our program is not only in their interest but also in that of the public service”, says Yoann Maras, head of the Alliance department for Paris.
What are the main axes on which this coalition intends to work in the coming years? Equipment, in particular automobiles. They are now in sufficient numbers in the capital. But their maintenance remains a problem. “Today, repairs are entrusted to the Speedy or Midas workshops. But the work takes an insane amount of time so we end up in absurd situations. As on the ring road where it happened that on seven arrow trucks they used to announce a lane change in the event of an accident, all seven broke down at the same time. “
The number of missions within the prefecture continues to grow
Second argument, the distribution of the workforce in the various Parisian units. If the number of police officers seems enormous with 15,500 civil servants, the director of the department believes that Paris police stations and emergency police units have become the poor relatives of the system because the number of missions within the prefecture it continues to grow while the numbers are not increasing.
And to do this, the delegate asks for the maintenance of troops in Paris who usually flee to the outer suburbs and provinces where the cheaper life is in line with the standard of living of the peacekeepers. “To encourage the permanence of civil servants,” observes the trade unionist, “loyalty bonuses should be increased and career development accelerated. Continuing staff training is very complicated because we have lost about fifty trainers. Consequently, we run after the retraining to arms and continuous training on intervention techniques has become almost non-existent ”.
