What are the police called in America and France?

National Police The Police National, historically known as the "Surete," is a citizen police force. Its origins may be traced back to 1812, when Eugene Francois Vidocq invented it. Its name was formally changed to "Police Nationale" in 1966. Today, its powers are defined by law and its duties include criminal investigations and public safety activities. It is under the supervision of the Ministry of the Interior.

There are three main types of Police forces in France: municipal, district, and national. The municipal police serve the smallest communities with a population under 5,000 people. They are usually based in a town hall or similar administrative building. They make up about one-third of all officers on the street and often have specialized units such as traffic cops or crime scene investigators. The district police cover larger municipalities between 5,000 and 100,000 people. They are divided into two branches: uniformed and non-uniformed. The district police officer (DPO) leads a team of detectives and supports the mayor in managing city affairs. DPOs work under the authority of a deputy chief who is usually also a DPO. There are some smaller departments with only a single officer; these are usually found in towns or villages. In general, districts with a population over 50,000 people will have a chief of police (CP), while those with 25,000 to 49,999 people will have a director of security (DS).

In France, the term "detective" is used to describe any law enforcement officer, but more specifically, it refers to members of police forces who investigate crime scenes and interrogate suspects.

Detectives are generally officers with permanent jobs working for the local police department or gendarmerie. However, there are also temporary detectives who work only during certain periods such as when a case is being investigated or when there is not enough staff to cover all shifts. These individuals are usually former regular officers who have been promoted to detective status.

In addition to regular investigations, some departments may assign special agents to cases that require expert knowledge or resources that cannot be provided by regular officers. These individuals often have previous experience in the field they are assigned to work on.

Detectives do not work alone; instead, they are usually part of a team. Other members of the team may include other officers who handle evidence, report crimes online, interview witnesses, etc.

Detection is an important part of police work.
