Early life[edit]

Aziz Jaidi was born and grew up in Marrakesh where his father worked as the regional director of the Water & Forests department.[1] After completing secondary school he enrolled in university and studied biology for some years.[1] Before graduating, he successfully passed the Police exams and joined National Police as an officer.[1] In the early 1990s, he was recruited by Mediouri to join the elite police force in charge of the protection of the royal family. He first started in the protection team of Hassan II but quickly joined that of the crown prince, who after becoming king appointed him as a replacement for Mediouri.[1]
