SAFETY: New Year events and attractions will have increased surveillance …
With the bomb threats continue to loom over the country, the New Year festivities will be placed this year under high security . Nearly 90,000 police and gendarmes will be present during the night of the 31st December to the 1st January throughout the entire territory.
The attractions will have increased surveillance. Many places will also be monitored closely as the Champs Elysees where nearly 600,000 people are expected, but also in Nice on the Promenade des Anglais or in the city centre of Strasbourg .
New security measures
To prevent terrorist attacks “with the use of a truck,” as in Nice or more recently on a Christmas market in Berlin, concrete blocks or barriers will be placed around areas where the public may congregate.
