dangerous places in Perpignan

Hi,

I was wondering what are the most dangerous places in perpignan. like for exemple the most dangerous communes?

The place where Stade Aime giral seems pretty rough. What is the name of that area?

Thanks

The area is called Le Vernet.

I would not say that the area around Stade Aimé Giral is unsafe, it is close to the Headquarters of the CRS police !

Why would you want to go there unless there is a game ? There isn't much to do in the area. Bas Vernet is fine with residential areas and private homes as well as communal housing. Haut Vernet is rougher in certain areas.

There are no "dangerous" places during the day in Perpignan. There are places which should better be avoided at night especially if you are alone.

Perpignan is a commune by itself and is surrounded by other "communes" - villages or towns with a mayor and a "Conseil Municipal".

whats a conseil municipal? = town councillor

Are communes not towns and villages? = Communes come in a range of sizes and Perpignan is a single Commune.

What is the GRS police? = CRS is the riot squad

As a matter of interest are the police in Perpignan armed? = All of them, as in all of France

Even better for local news is L'Indépendant at www.lindependant.com, Midi Libre being considered as a "foreign" newspaper :-))

What are you getting up to that you need to know the rough neighborhoods and the level of armament of the local law enforcement?
