Below is a link to the decret insituting the rank of ''commissaire général.'' Décret n° 2016-808 du 16 juin 2016, publié au Journal officiel du 18 juin 2016, relatif à l’instauration du grade de commissaire général de police.
Your French is better than mine, so you might be able to find something of general interest.

I am making a guess here, that the new rank will have a leaf and three stripes. What do you Think?

Well, the Gendarmerie acutally do have issues with the proposed rank insignia for the commandant divisionnaire; re-read my first posting.
My arguments from a Gendarmerie point of view, would have been that both the new ranks with proposed rank insignia of LTC and COL, still are subordinate to the lowest rank of commissaire; so it would be to much bling for the positions, since a commissaire divisionnaire is the equivalent of a COL and a commissaire covers the span of MAJ/LTC.
But the Gendarmerie argues more along this line: "Policemen are not Soldiers, if they wanted to be Soldiers they should have joined the Gendarmerie; and been deprived of their right to join a union. Why should a police officer have the same rank insignia as the commanding officer of a combat regiment or a naval ship?"
