A prefect in France is like a governor here in the US?

A préfet is in charge of a territorial departement and the sous-préfet is in charge of a arrondissement (a subordinate district).

The préfet (prefect) is a specifically French institution brought in by Napoleon. He succeeded the intendant of the kings of France, responsible for enforcing the king’s orders in the provinces. It was Richelieu who increased the number of intendants in the seventeenth century and gave them absolute power in the provinces. This system continued by and large until the Revolution.

On 22 December 1789, the Constituent Assembly created 83 departments, each with an assembly and an 8-member executive. There was no longer any representative of the State. The departmental assemblies had unsupervised administrative powers, but their existence ended in April 1793 when the representatives of the people were drawn from the revolutionary committees.

Then, after an interlude when a commissaire (commissioner) represented the government, the office of préfet was created in 1800 by Napoleon Bonaparte.

Départements are divided into one to five arrondissements. The capital city of an arrondissement is called the sous-préfecture. The civil servant in charge is the sous-préfet.

Paris, which is itself a département, and the three surrounding départements, are governed by a single préfecture for law enforcement and security purposes, which is the préfecture de police. The préfet de police has the power of law enforcement for Paris, which is a power of the mayor for the other French cities and towns.

Until 1977, Paris had indeed no mayor and was mostly ruled by the préfet de police (a situation inherited from the Paris Commune, 1871). However, the powers of the mayor of Paris were increased at the expense of those of the Préfet de Police in 2002, notably for traffic and parking decisions (the préfet retains the responsibility on main thoroughfares such as the Champs-Élysées avenue, and on any street during the organization of demonstrations).
