Radicalization among police a growing concern for France
A leaked memo has revealed that not even the French police is spared from the phenomenon of radicalization or fundamentalism, with a number of cases highlighted in recent years.
While the numbers are tiny compared to the number of police in Paris, the internal memo has revealed that there were 17 cases between 2012 and 2015 of officers in Paris demonstrating behaviour or acts that concerned their superiors.
Around one third of the cases involved women and four of them were officers who have converted to Islam. None of the cases highlighted involve high-ranking officers.
