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. Exchanges were held throughout the week on approaches to building 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.
Also, 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.
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. We would also like to thank all the ICPC partners who made these visits and exchange sessions possible.
