Come marvel at the diversity in this suburb of Amiens

“This area is notorious nationwide since the 90s, the northern suburbs of Amiens was the scene of urban violence. This area has problems that since more than 20 years. According to Gilles Demailly, Amiens-Nord has even become “a zone of lawlessness.” “This is an area where we can not order a pizza, where you can not bring a doctor. The violence is continuing, it is daily physical, but also institutional. And the side of the forces of order, this tension is sustained. “Working in the northern district of Amiens became very complicated. The police are not welcome in this neighborhood. And for police officers, in addition to being difficult, it became dangerous, “says Europe 1 Michaël Vandevelde, deputy secretary general of SNOP-SCSI police union.”
