UN MARKED POLICE CARS

Post by ShovelHead » Sun Dec 23, 2018 2:31 pm

Hi
ive recently seen about 4 unmarked police cars one passed me on the way to the family village limoges,
others in the St Junion areas both cars of very dark blue or black. All had two blue lights inside the
front grill and a removable blue lamp on the drivers side The gendarme looked more paramilitary
of the one i saw getting out to have a look at a car black flack jacket and tooled up .Possibly because of the episode
in Strasbourg.

Not uncommon. Either Gendarmerie Mobile or members of one of the Police Nationale regional RAID groups. Normal way to distinguish is that Police Nationale combat gear is normally darker blue than Gendarmerie, and they have the Black/white or tricolour round shoulder patch; Gendarmerie have the grenade shoulder patch

The gendarmerie mobile brigades around here have a couple of unmarked Subaru's - they are that funny sort of RAF blue that all the gendarmerie vans are, so is a bit of a give-away.

They're keeping the shop front clear so Big Mac can pick up his croissants sans problems.
