Les politiques publiques de lutte contre la délinquance

Abstract : The transformation of the French model of crime prevention and control which started in the early eighties bears witness to the increasing complexity of the process of definition, elaboration and implementation of the programmes of action. From then on, international institutions, local authorities and actors of trading and non-trading companies have been contributing in the studied area. These new partners are given the responsibility to support the state institutions in their craking down on crime. Prior to this, they take part in the elaboration and the implementation of programmes of prevention. This is now time for the " co-production " of the security, and the transformation of the organization of powers questions about the permanency of the state monopoly concerning the crime prevention and control. Observing the contemporary crime policy through the prism of the evolution of the state action, this study aims at showing that the forms of decentralization, internationalization, and privatization of the crime prevention and control policies do not assume the complexion of a republican model placing the State at the centre of the system of action. Combining mechanisms of outsourcing an internalization, the State intends to support, or even reinforce its superiority. The porcesses of hybridization of the regulations and joint production security do not result in an weakening or a loss of interest from the State. Paradoxically, they contribute to restore its authority, its legitimacy and its efficiency.
