The visit of the delegation of the Carabineros of Chile at the ICPC

In the framework of the reciprocal cooperation agreement developed with its partner, the Carabineros de Chile, the ICPC received last week a delegation in Montreal in order to exchange on their approaches to build a common vision on crime prevention and on different policing approaches.   

During the week, we were delighted to welcome Mr. Felipe Orellana Martínez, Consul General of Chile in Montreal, for an exchange session on policing realities in Quebec and Chile.   

The ICPC and the Carabineros de Chile were hosted in Nicolet to meet with Mr. Pierre St-Antoine, Director General of the École Nationale de Police du Québec, as well as members to discuss approaches related to community policing and concentration policing.   

In addition, we had the pleasure of being welcomed by Mr. Fady Dagher, Director of the Service de police de l’agglomération de Longueuil for a meeting and field visit in Longueuil,  by Mr. Yann-Cédric Quéro, Chief of the Partnership and Diversity Division of the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal for a meeting in Montreal, as well as  by the Sûreté du Québec and the Service du renseignement criminel du Québec for discussion meetings. 

Also, we had the pleasure to meet with Mr. Mathieu Parenteau, Director of America and the Caribbean of the Ministère des relations internationales et de la Francophonie du Québec for a Quebec-Chile exchange meeting on the themes of Quebec’s international action in the Americas and the reality of policing in Quebec.  

We would like to thank all the ICPC partners who made these visits and exchange sessions possible.  

Finally, we would like to thank our partners, the Carabineros de Chile; it was a pleasure to welcome them and accompany them with the objective of developing common activities favoring the development of more inclusive and safer societies and communities.

ICPC releases the first crime report in the Urban Agglomeration of Montreal

The ICPC has published its first report  on crime in the Agglomeration of Montreal. 

The report provides an overview of the offences that took place in the territory over the last few years, for the nineteen boroughs and fourteen related cities that make up the Urban Agglomeration of Montreal. It allows us, among other things, to know and understand the crime data collected according to the rules of the Uniform Crime Reporting Survey (UCR 2.2) of the Quebec Ministry of Public Safety, from 2015 to 2020. 

This report is divided into two sections with six chapters: 

- The first section presents the state of crime in Montreal and specifically addresses the evolving trends in crimes against the person and crimes against property, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the latter, as well as the spatial, geographical and relational dimensions of crime in the territory. 

- The second section focuses on specific issues of concern to policy makers.  

The chapters included in this section integrate an in-depth analysis of the components of offences related to the themes of sexual offences and conjugal and intra-family violence.

The report is only available in French.
