Une seconde fois veuf depuis l'année 1847, il se console dans les bras de jeunes maîtresses à qui il fait successivement miroiter un riche héritage en distribuant des testaments olographes sans valeur. For the next few months, 67-year-old Vidocq was remanded into custody in the Conciergerie. For other uses, see, Years of wandering and prison (1795–1800). When asked for his identity, he described himself as Monsieur Rousseau from Lille and escaped while the police tried to confirm his statement. Vidocq described his work from this period: It was with a troop so small as this that I had to watch over more than twelve hundred pardoned convicts, freed, some from public prisons, others from solitary confinement: to put in execution, annually, from four to five hundred warrants, as well from the préfet as the judicial authorities; to procure information, to undertake searches, and to obtain particulars of every description; to make nightly rounds, so perpetual and arduous during the winter season; to assist the commissaries of police in their searches, or in the execution of search warrants; to explore the various rendezvous in every part; to go to the theatres, the boulevards, the barriers, and all other public places, the haunts of thieves and pickpockets. His offer was accepted, and on 20 July, he was jailed in Bicêtre, where he started his work as a spy. Vidocq described his work from this period: It was with a troop so small as this that I had to watch over more than twelve hundred pardoned convicts, freed, some from public prisons, others from solitary confinement: to put in execution, annually, from four to five hundred warrants, as well from the préfet as the judicial authorities; to procure information, to undertake searches, and to obtain particulars of every description; to make nightly rounds, so perpetual and arduous during the winter season; to assist the commissaries of police in their searches, or in the execution of search warrants; to explore the various rendezvous in every part; to go to the theatres, the boulevards, the barriers, and all other public places, the haunts of thieves and pickpockets.

Sa sépulture, relevée, n'existait plus à la fin du XIXe siècle,. – 1857. május 11.) Le 30 avril 1857, la paralysie gagne ses jambes[n 2]. Although Vidocq had no known children, Emile-Adolphe Vidocq, the son of his first wife, tried to get recognized as his son (even changing his last name for this purpose), but failed. Vidocq's wife, who was ailing throughout their marriage, died in June 1824 in a hospital.
He used his contacts and his reputation in the criminal underworld to gain trust. He mainly employed released convicts – both men and women. Vidocq was a criminal in nineteenth century Paris who changed sides and became a leading detective. By stealing, he provided himself with some level of comfort. Not only were many of Vidocq's paramours actresses, but many of his friends and acquaintances were also from the theatre scene. Vidocq persuaded his superiors to allow his agents, who also included women, to wear plain clothes and disguises depending on the situation. Therefore, for each arrested person, he carefully set up an index card with a personal description, aliases, previous convictions, modus operandi, and other information.  A total of eleven women came forward as owners of his testament, a document which they had received for their favours instead of presents. The antipathy between Vidocq and Duplessis was great. In the presidential election of 10 December 1848, Lamartine received less than 8,000 votes. In 2001, under the direction of Pitof, Gérard Depardieu played Vidocq in the French science fiction film Vidocq. Vidocq also had a different approach to interrogation. What confirmed my resolution was the information that the prisoners were to be sent forthwith to the Bicêtre, and there, making one chain, to be sent on to the Bagne at Brest. Vidocq personally trained his agents, for example, in selecting the correct disguise based on the kind of job. En 1828, il publie des Mémoires qui connaissent un grand succès, et qui inspirent notamment à Honoré de Balzac son personnage de Vautrin. The Second Republic was proclaimed, with Alphonse de Lamartine as the head of a transitional government. The lawsuit had been very expensive, and his reputation was damaged. She came to live in the household at 111 Rue de l'Hirondelle, where Vidocq's mother and a niece of hers, the 27-year-old Fleuride Albertine Maniez (born March 22, 1793), also lived.
 His reform ideas were adopted by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and, as a result, also affected J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI. À Bicêtre, où il est initié à la savate par Jean Goupil, il est incorporé dans la chaîne de Brest, un groupe de forçats — que l'on enchaîne les uns aux autres — destiné au bagne de ce port. En 1809, à nouveau arrêté, il propose ses services d'indicateur à la préfecture de police. Vidocq is considered by historians as the "father" of modern criminology. He is described as being fearless, rowdy and cunning, very talented, but also very lazy. Je viens vous prier de vouloir bien récepter ma démission, et recevoir mes sincères remerciements pour toutes les marques de bonté dont vous avez daigné me combler. Par deux fois, ses supérieurs le font démissionner. After a total of fourteen days, he was released from prison, but even this did not tame him.
It was not only plays inspired by Vidocq that were shown in the theatre. During this time, Louise Chevalier contacted him to inform him of their divorce. No child resulted, and the marriage was not happy from the start, and when Vidocq learned that his wife had cheated on him with the adjutant, Pierre Laurent Vallain, he left again for the army. Although the critics, among them one from The Times, were quite positive, the play was performed only nine times in the first month and then dropped. Vidocq's wife, who was ailing throughout their marriage, died in June 1824 in a hospital. This urgent circumstance will preclude my ability to steer the future operations of the security brigade.
