From the early ‘swallow’ policemen to the Narcs ‘ brigade des Stups’, the parisian police history is sifted through for evidence and ground breaking revelations. In four chronological episodes – the early days of forensic science, the development of gang warfare, the dark days of collaboration and striving towards a modern police force – this collection offers an uncompromising account of the history of the glorified institution.
