The SPVM offers its police officers a professional development plan to guide them along their career path.
This plan helps the officers to:
The Montreal society is in perpetual change. New rules and laws must be enacted and applied to adequately maintain the safety of individuals and property. New kinds of crimes emerge and the oldest crimes are committed in new ways. The public must be informed about new risks. Police
Officers must constantly search for new methods and be well trained to master the powerful tools and most recent work methods to better fight against crime and better conceive their prevention activities. Their success rests on, among other things, good communications towards both personnel and the public.
The SPVM training strategy for recruits was modified to make sure the host program is better integrated into the work environment. New training methods were also developed: role of media relation agents to inform the public, realities involved in raids, interrogation and interview techniques - integrating elements of synergology - to employ state-of-the-art practices. To accomplish this, courses in Baton use, High-Risk Vehicle Intervention and Foot pursuits were completed by all Police personnel.
In addition, Police Officers assigned to stake-outs will profit from a new training course in advanced driving specifically designed for them and introduced in 2009. Also, the 'Intervention in a Changing Society' training, taken by many in 2008, continued in 2009 for employees who had not yet taken it. By the end of 2009, 92% of staff, in all categories of personnel, had taken this training.
