Pickpockets “form a gang of four to five people … sometimes there can be around 30” was the description of the situation, made by a Eiffel Tour worker. The emblematic monument attracts some 7 million tourists a year, being a principal attraction in Paris. The combat against pickpockets is a subject on the table for the police in Paris. As French media reported, some 26,000 police and municipal agents would be deployed onto the streets of Paris this summer. This will include, without doubts, the Eiffel Tower area.
