The Direction centrale de la police aux frontières (DCPAF) (English: Central Directorate of Border Police), former police de l'air et des frontières, is a directorate of the French National Police that is responsible for carrying out immigration checks at certain border crossing points and border surveillance in some areas in France.[1] They work alongside their British counterparts at Calais, and along the Channel Tunnel Rail Link with the British Transport Police.

Since 1995, Customs have replaced the Border Police in carrying out immigration control at smaller border checkpoints, in particular at maritime borders and regional airports.[2]
