The neighbourhood police model (police de quartier) was introduced in january 1997 and is based on the community approach, and its main objective is to bring the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) closer to the citizens.
The police de quartier model introduced the concepts of sense of security, citizens' quality of life and road safety to the SPVM's mission.
This required the personnel to learn new approaches and also called on them to deal with the growing but legitimate expectations of the public and elected officials, especially in terms of police visibility, partnership, community involvement and transparency.
Since the police de quartier model was introduced, the SPVM has refined the model to make it a flexible system that can be adjusted and adapted to changes in the environment, taking in stride the needs and expectations expressed by the public, the elected officials, other partners and the SPVM personnel.
