The name of a private in the armed police of France in our day; but in former times the appellation of gens d'armes or gendarmes was confined to the flower of the French army, composed of nobles or noblesse, and armed at all points. The present gendarmerie of France are charged with the maintenance of its police and the execution of its laws. The gendarmes are all picked men; they are usually taken from the regular forces, and are of tried courage or approved conduct. There are horse gendarmes and foot gendarmes. They are formed into small parties called brigades; and the union of a number of these forms a departmental company.
