The French police corps have suffered today the loss of three officers during a gendarme operation related to domestic violence in a rural area of central France.

The thoughts of all CEPOL colleagues are with the victims who died in service and with their families.

CEPOL wants to pay tribute to the commitment and sacrifice of all police officers who give their lives to protect the communities and expresses its solidarity with the gendarme police force for the loss of three of their members, wishing a speedy recovery to the fourth colleague who was injured.

This incident is a troubling reminder of the challenges we are facing in Europe when it comes to domestic violence. CEPOL is committed to promote a society with zero tolerance towards every form of this type of abuses.
