MRC Police here to stay, for now

Police recommendation: Upgraded or amalgamated

Less than 24 hours after the tabling of the Livre Vert on “Police reality in Quebec” report, Public Security Minister Geneviève Guilbault poured cold water on fears the MRC des Collines could potentially lose its municipal police force.

On May 25, the Advisory Committee on Police Reality, tabled in 2019 by Guilbault, released its final 490-page report offering 138 recommendations to improve policing in the province, taking into account new technologies, racial profiling, cost reduction, and the welfare of police officers.
