Police in France
Law enforcement in France has a long history dating back to 570 C.E., when night watch systems were common place. Policing is centralized at the national level. Recently, legislation has allowed local governments to hire their own police officers which are called the Police municipale.
There are two national police forces called Police Nationale (PN) and Gendarmarie Nationale respectively. There is also the Prefecture of Police of Paris which provides policing services directly as a subdivision of France's Ministry of the Interior. Only certain, designated police officers have the power to conduct criminal investigations, and such investigations are supervised by investigative magistrates.
