>> five times when the prefect of police Didier Lallement, on departure, found himself under fire from critics
The departure of the current prefect of police must be announced by the government on July 20 at the end of the Council of Ministers. His successor will then be appointed immediately. Didier Lallement will leave his post in stride. Last August, he reached the age limit of 65 years in the prefectural corps, but his mandate was extended by two years thanks to a derogatory provision.
Arriving at the head of the Paris police headquarters a little over three years ago, on March 21, 2019, Didier Lallement has often been at the heart of controversy, such as during confinement where he declared that “those found in intensive care are those who at the start of confinement did not respect it”. His management during numerous demonstrations or after the incidents at the Stade de France has also often been criticized.
