Survey : the French have mostly trust in their forces of order - The Point

While the executive tries to calm the tensions related to police violence, against a backdrop of business George Floyd, in the United States, and Adama Traoré, in France, a survey Elabe conducted for BFM TV has just reset the clock to the hour. It shows that the French trust, in a vast majority of their forces of order.

A proportion that rises to 69 % for the police, but presents a decrease of 7 points from a previous study dating back to April 2019. At the same time, 81% of the respondents say that they trust in the force, and 85 % trust the army. In contrast, only 51% of the respondents say they have confidence in the justice system, compared to 49 % of the opposite opinion.

The reaction of the executive to the police violence that is considered too late

These works also show differences from one age group to another : in people over 65 years of age, trusted to the army, the gendarmerie and the police to be 90 %, 88 % and 76 % ; for 18-24 year olds, on the other hand, the proportion drops to 86 %, 76 % and 65 %. Of the electorate to another, there are, again, differences : the proportion of voters of François Fillon saying they trust the police is 86 %, against 80% for the voters of Emmanuel Macron. For those who have chosen Benoît Hamon and Jean-Luc Mélenchon in the first round of the last presidential election, the proportion drops respectively to 51 % and 55 %.

it is also worth mentioning the case of police violence : 33% of the people interviewed by Elabe, these facts are first of all related to the " aggressive behaviour of some individuals ". 14 % feel that "the increase of social tensions and [of] disputes in the country" is the first question. A same proportion of respondents believes that the "lack of numbers" and "the fatigue that accumulates to the police" are the first factor in police violence. Even more respondents (16 %) perceive the "excessive use of force by some police officers" as the primary cause of police violence.

Finally, the work published by BFM TV have focused on the perception, by respondents, of the political reaction to the police violence : 56 % of respondents believe that the government was too slow to respond, compared to 32 % who believe that the president and the ministers have reacted at the right time (12 % perceive a reaction that is too fast).
