This chapter examines the political outlook of police officials and gendarmes in France, along with the internal politics of the ‘forces of order’ characterised by persistent tension between various police services. After discussing the political allegiance of police officials, the chapter considers the corporatism of the police and the gendarmerie. It also looks at the issue of racism in the police and the politics of fragmented policing, along with the relations between police and gendarmes. The chapter concludes by looking at the unionisation of the police.
