Creating a work on the French National Police is challenging for both the complex subject matter as well as the rarity of the archives. Here, however, the author, a police officer himself and a passionate researcher, has succeeded at presenting a book rich in previously unpublished photographs and documentation. Dominique Noel offers an in-depth inventory of all the weapons allocated to the police force from the Ancien Régime to 2012.

From the armed halberd guards enlisted under the 13th century Saint Louis to the 2010 gardiens de la paix, equipped with the SIG SP 2022, the reader will discover the vicissitudes that have left their mark on this police institution over the centuries, gaining an in-depth knowledge of the evolution of the National Police.
