PUBLIC CONSULTATION RELATED TO THE PROJECT TO REPLACE THE MUNICIPAL POLICE FORCE
In compliance with article 73.1 of the Loi sur la police (Police Act), the Ville de Mont-Tremblant, having the power to request authorization to abolish its police force, must hold a public consultation, by means of two meetings, concerning the Ville de Mont-Tremblant’s project to replace its police force with that of the Sûreté du Québec.
NOTICE is given that a public consultation will be held in the École secondaire Curé-Mercure located at 700, boulevard du Docteur-Gervais on the following dates and times :

Saturday, November 2, 2019 at 10 a.m.
The purpose of each of these meetings is to present the principal effects of the project to replace the police force, allowing every citizen to submit their comments and promote an open discussion of the project so that the Agglomeration Council can take an enlightened decision. Any citizen may also transmit their comments in writing, by November 17, 2019, to the following email address: email@example.com, or to the following mailing address:

The main effects of the project to replace the police force can be summarized as follows.
EFFECTS ON THE LEVEL OF SERVICES
The Ville currently provides level 1 police services and the Sûreté du Québec plays a complementary role by providing services of a higher level than those provided by the municipal police force, namely, those of levels 2 to 6.
The Sûreté du Québec will provide police services from level 1 to 6, which is the highest level of service. In order to maintain the services in the vicinity, the Sûreté du Québec will serve the population from the current police station (380 rue Siméon). This latter should be in conformity with the rules and parameters established by the Société québécoise des infrastructures (SQI).
Some services will not, however, be covered by the Sûreté du Québec and will continue to be covered by the Ville, including the school crossing guards.
EFFECTS ON SPENDING
Net costs estimated for the police force for 2019 total $7,992,403.
For 2019, the bill from the Quebec government for the services of the Sûreté du Québec would have been $5,519,146, to which must be added a temporary sliding supplement for a period of four (4) years which allows the government to absorb a part of the cost of the transfer. For 2019, the total bill would have been $6,475,312.
In consideration of the preceding and bearing in mind adjustments related to revenues, notably the rental of our police station and the charges assumed by the Ville, one notes net annual economies of between $1,460,000 and $2,580,000 for the first five (5) years of the agreement. This represents a saving of close to $10 million for the period according to current government parameters. It should be noted that these projections have been calculated on the basis of an annual indexation of two per cent.
EFFECTS ON POLICE OFFICERS AND ON NON-POLICE STAFF
The integration of all eligible Police Department police officers, including temporary police officers, will be carried out in accordance with article 73.2 of the Police Act. The large majority of police officers will continue to work on the territory of the Ville de Mont-Tremblant. Senior officers will retain their management status in the Sûreté du Québec
As regards non-police personnel, article 353.7 of the Police Act anticipates that they will become government of Quebec employees to the extent that they are covered by a decision of the Treasury Council.
EFFECTS ON THE MATERIEL, EQUIPMENT AND VEHICLES USED BY THE POLICE DEPARTMENT
The Ville will first offer the goods which it no longer needs to the Sûreté du Québec, for them to evaluate and possibly purchase. The Ville will then put up for sale the goods that have not been acquired by the Sûreté du Québec.
You are invited to consult the information leaflet that will be mailed during the week of October 21, 2019, and made available on the Ville website at villedemont-tremblant.qc.ca. This leaflet will provide you with more detail concerning the effects of the project to replace the police force.
