Police Bunkers, Building Upgrades and Transportation

Things are starting to turn around for these cities as officials have worked to ensure transportation extends out to Clichy-sous-Bois, and municipalities have begun to invest in the look of the banlieus and renovate public housing.

Clichy-sous-Bois has also received its first police station. The riot-proof police bunker was devised by Sarkozy in the wake of the second uprising. Before the development, residents had to visit stations in another town to file complaints.
