Everyday life

Public safety and tranquility

In all French municipalities, to make security policy more effective and closer to the citizens, the mayor has important powers. He is the competent authority to take and enforce the measures necessary to maintain public order, security, tranquillity and public health on his territory. In this task he is assisted by the municipal police.

Municipal Police

Seven officers make up the Val d'Isère Municipal Police. The team is reinforced during the busy seasons with 11 additional officers in winter and 3 in summer.

A municipal police force that listens to residents and holidaymakers is what the mayor expects from this service. They are tasked with:

  • ensure a local presence in all neighbourhoods,
  • respond to requests for intervention from citizens, merchants, holidaymakers,
  • to enforce the mayor's orders,
  • conduct road safety campaigns in schools,
  • to ensure the supervision of festive, cultural and sporting events,
  • ensure that the traffic regulations are respected and enforced.

In Val d'Isère the municipal police works in close collaboration with the National Gendarmerie.
It also manages the lost and found service and the municipal pound.

Since June 2019, the municipality of Val d'Isère has been authorised to make audiovisual recordings of the interventions of municipal police officers. Audiovisual recording of interventions
