This chapter examines the relationship between the police and the judiciary in France, with emphasis on public order and criminal law enforcement and their implications for the rights of individuals. It first considers the obscurity of the key legal concept of public order as well as the connections between policing, the constitution, and administrative and criminal law. It then explores the rule of law, administrative police, and the relations between police and justice within the context of the French political order.

Keywords:   police, judiciary, France, public order, criminal law, law enforcement, policing, rule of law, justice, political order
