Centre de Recherche de l’Ecole des Officiers de la Gendarmerie Nationale (CREOGN)

Under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Interior, the French gendarmerie is one of the two national police forces dedicated to prevention, law enforcement, public order and crisis management. It is also a branch of the French army. 100 000 strong, it is deeply rooted in the country, mainland and overseas, because of its dissemination and its history. For 20 years the French gendarmerie with partners has developed trainings to fight domestic violence in order to improve skills of gendarmes to address this social harm.
