Following advice of the security staffs (EMS) and the circular issued by the Minister of the Interior on 29 April 2014, CPRAF (commonly known as a “monitoring unit”) has been established in each department, with the dual objective of supporting families who report a relative or of taking care of, in a multidisciplinary preventive perspective, persons reported to be in the process of radicalisation (low and very low end of the spectrum) when such a need is expressed. CPRAF has a role in developing cooperative actions between community territorials and State’s services concerning the care of radicalized individuals and support their families (family allowance funds, etc.).

Description générale:
Dans le prolongement des états-majors de sécurité (EMS), la circulaire du ministre de l’intérieur du 29 avril 2014 a installé dans chaque département une CPRAF (communément appelée « cellule de suivi ») qui a pour double objectif, d’une part d’accompagner les familles qui signalent un proche et, d’autre part de prendre en charge, dans une perspective préventive pluridisciplinaire, les personnes signalées en voie de radicalisation (bas et très bas du spectre) lorsqu’un tel besoin est exprimé. Le CPRAF a pour rôle de développer des actions de coopération entre les collectivités territoriales et les services de l’État concernant la prise en charge des personnes radicalisées et le soutien à leurs familles (caisses d’allocations familiales, etc.).
