The felonies and misdemeanours recorded in France are evidentiary facts brought for the first time to the knowledge of police and gendarmerie services. Their qualification may be modified by the judicial authority. Excluded from crime statistics are all offences and misdemeanours relative to road circulation, offences covered by the administrative police and offences recorded by other administrations (customs, tax services and fraud prevention, labour inspection, etc.).
