The Brigade is a unit of the land forces, placed for employment under the authority of Paris police prefect and whose first and permanent vocation is the operational commitment for the defense of the populations and the goods, on its area of responsibility. For this reason, it carries out each year nearly 500,000 interventions. Recognized as a crack corps, the Brigade is characterized by its collective performance, team spirit, rusticity and adaptability. The Brigade’s greatest wealth is the 8,700 men and women who make up it. They commit themselves in everyday life, sometimes at the cost of their lives, in situations where their self-control, mental, sense of duty and of public good make all the difference!
