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?"

Rather funny headline: Police and gendarmery in war about a braid.
"Tout juste créé, le grade de commandant divisionnaire de police devait ainsi hériter des cinq barrettes couronnant, dans l’armée ou la gendarmerie, lieutenants-colonels et colonels. Patatras. Quelques jours avant de tomber au champ du déshonneur politique, Bruno Le Roux aura soudainement supprimé cet apanage, proposant en retour une simple feuille d’acanthe fraîchement cueillie dans les tiroirs du ministère."
"Only just created, the rank of commandant divisionnaire de police was to inherit the 5 stripes worn by, in the army or the gendarmerie, lieutenant-colonels and colonels. Pratfall. A few days before falling on the field of political dishonor, Bruno Le Roux was to suddenly suppress this appanage, proposing instead a single acanthus leaf freshly harvested from the drawers of the ministry
