French RAID Police

Recherche Assistance Intervention Dissuasion (Research, Assistance, Intervention, Deterrence) or RAID is a Special Operations tactical unit of the National Police with more manpower and equipment, like the GIGN. Its primary responsibility areas are Paris and the suburbs as well as “Plan Piratair” (for plane hijackings), nuclear sites, the Channel Tunnel, the trains, and other strategic sites. It is the National Police’s primary anti-terrorism unit and the counterpart of the GIGN of the Gendarmerie Nationale. RAID was founded by Robert Broussard and Ange Mancini in 1985, in response to a bombing and murder campaign.

On 13 May 1993, a disturbed man named Eric Schmitt, calling himself “HB” (for “Human Bomb”, in English), and carrying large quantities of explosives, took 21 children hostages in a school in Neuilly. Nicolas Sarkozy, mayor of Neuilly at the time, managed to obtain the liberation of several children, though he was put aside of the negotiation process later on, being not a professional negotiator and thus risking interference with the police forces. After 46 hours, with the hostage-taker falling asleep, members of RAID crept into the school to evacuate the 6 remaining children. Schmitt was shot dead by 3 bullets to the head as he tried

to reach the explosives. All the children were safe, as well as their teacher and a nurse.
RAID also arrested members of Action Directe in a more anti-terrorist action.

Recently, RAID operators saw action during the 2005 and 2006 riots in France, as well as in a

hostage situation in Versailles, where an armed man was shot dead by RAID operators after coming under attack.

RAID is in charge of the protection of foreign dignitaries traveling in France. Three of its members have died in service.

RAID has a strength of around 180 men and is divided into three main sections with about 60 members each:

  • First Section

The first section deals with the usual tasks of special forces: intervention, monitoring, protection.

  • Second Section

The second section is the Research and Development unit of the RAID. It studies techniques and collects information. This section is divided into three groups:

    • Intelligence Group
    • Technical Group
    • Weaponry Group
  • Third section

The Third section deals with the psychological aspects of the interventions. It is in charge of negotiations and crisis management.

It also provides psychological support for the policemen in the unit and in the whole French Police. It is composed of forensic experts, a psychologist and physicians.

The Negotiation group is on permanent alert. It deals with suicides, violent crises, mental disorders, hostage crises and other major troubles, independently from the rest of the RAID. It assesses the dangers of the situation, suggests possible solutions, and helps with the negotiations

and the resolution of the crises. If the whole RAID has to intervene, the Negotiations section is used as a reconnaissance unit, and prepares the intervention of the other sections. To join the unit, an officer needs five years duty within the Police Nationale and after passing a thorough test he will serve in the RAID for five years. With a commendation he can expand it further five years. All members must leave the tactical unit after ten years. Officers over thirty-five can not make an application.
