Records of Les Brigades Spéciales (BS) [Special Brigades] of the Préfecture de Police, which were a part of the Direction Centrale des Renseignements Généraux (now called the Department of Intelligence of the Prefecture of Police) and was created specifically to track down enemies of the Vichy government.
