"In a context in which the forces of order are particularly exposed to the risk of confrontation with individuals armed and extremely dangerous, the need to take action to neutralize them leads me to authorize the armament of the CRS staff to act on the beaches in 2016 bathing season", it reads in an internal note signed by the Director of CRS, the French newspaper Le Figaro had access.

The decision was taken after the double murder of a couple of police in mid-June, in Yvelines. The authorization to carry firearms is, however, limited to the responsible of each aid station or its replacement.
