The city of Paris has announced new measures to improve safety in low-income areas, including hiring security guards to patrol various public spaces.
The city plans on hiring around 35 security officers to patrol areas like public squares, subway station entrances and other areas in some of the city’s northern neighbourhoods where migrants often camp and the streets have become dangerous for women, Le Parisien reports.
The Place de la Chapelle and the areas around it are specifically mentioned due to prior complaints by women living in the area that they were being threatened and harassed by migrant men.
The city mandated the Aurore association to take over food distribution after a previous organisation gave up due to the rising tide of violence from the illegal migrants they were trying to help.
