The police are mobilized this Tuesday, May 14 to find the people who attacked a prison administration van in Eure, as well as the inmate whose escape they enabled. “The “Epervier” plan has been triggered. All means are being used to find these criminals,” Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin said on X (ex-Twitter).

This Épervier plan is triggered by the gendarmerie brigade of the department concerned in the event of a kidnapping or escape, when a large-scale search is set up in an area covered by the gendarmerie. It allows field units and the different command levels of the gendarmerie to be put on alert. It is established for a given time – one to four hours, renewable – and within a defined perimeter.

200 gendarmes mobilized

This perimeter is then crisscrossed by the police: road traffic nodes are defined to install roadblocks and patrols; entry and exit points are particularly monitored, particularly train stations or airports.

200 gendarmes are engaged in Eure, mainly departmental gendarmes and bikers but also from neighboring departments (Seine-Maritime, Calvados, Val-d’Oise and Yvelines), as well as a helicopter. The GIGN of Satory (Yvelines) also visited the site.
