This chapter examines the factors that affect public opinion of the standing and reputation of the police and gendarmerie in France, as well as their role in politics. It begins with an overview of the reasons why the French police and gendarmerie have a negative public image before turning to a discussion of police relations with the political order. Finally, it considers reforms aimed at improving the effectiveness of policing, particularly in the area of criminal investigation, recruitment, and training.
