Labor of love: RAID police RAID (Research, Assistance, Intervention, Deterrence), is an elite tactical unit within the French National Police force. Founded in 1985 and led by General Control Jean-Michel FAUVERGUE, the unit operates under the authority of the National Police's Director General within the Ministry of the Interior. RAID is the central unit with the FIPN (National Police Intervention Force), a group created in 2009 that also includes "regional satellite' units: the seven GIPN, now referred to as "RAID Satellites", in France's primary urban centers (Marseille, Lyon, Lille, Strasbourg, Rennes, Bordeaux and Nice), and the BRI-BAC in Paris (Anti-Crime Brigade). RAID has the jurisdiction to operate throughout France. The unit's operational assignments include Research (locating wanted individuals), Assistance to other police units (either operational or technical), operational Intervention (interrogating dangerous individuals), and Deterrence (often situations are resolved simply by indicating that a RAID unit is on the way).

Although they are located 10,000 km from mainland France, PGHM Reunion still works closely with Petzl to monitor and provide feedback on PPE (personal protective equipment) performance. In spite of the Indian Ocean's exotic element, certain rescues on the island of Reunion are among the most hazardous.
