The gendarmerie is one of our oldest institutions! She is indeed the heiress of constables created during the Hundred Years War (1337-1450) to control the armies. It was not until the 16th century that its missions were extended to civil protection. The entity “National Gendarmerie”Saw the light of day in the midst of the Revolution, following a law promulgated on February 16, 1791. Today, the National Gendarmerie is attached to the Ministry of the Interior but retains its status as an Army force, and its members are military. Traditionally deployed in rural and peri-urban areas, the National Gendarmerie acts in complementarity with the police forces, generally concentrated in urban areas. On the ground, the Gendarmerie is made up of units of departmental gendarmerie, the mobile gendarmerie, the republican guard and special units.
