Community Policing in Canada: An Evaluation for Montreal

  • André Normandeau


In France and Quebec, they call the model: “Une Police de Proximité.” In Spain and Latin America, the common expression is “Policia de Barrio.” In Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States, the term is usually: “Community Policing.” The acronym in North America is almost a pun: C.O.P./P.O.P. (“Community-Oriented Policing”/“Problem-Oriented Policing”). However, for the public, it is simple: “the police is the police,” a kind of insurance policy against violence and theft.
