Information for teacher and social worker

Inviting a police officer to your classroom

Community relations officers are in charge of promoting various prevention topics, especially among elementary and high school students across the island of Montréal.

From two to three community relations officers work in every neighbourhood station and take part in the life of the neighbourhood by getting involved in community organizations, for example, or holding information sessions for seniors or in schools.

If you would like to invite a police officer to your classroom to talk about prevention, please contact your PDQ directly. We recommend that you make a reservation early in the school year to arrange a visit for the current year. Better yet, call in May to arrange a visit for the following school year.

You might also consider play our “Flik interactive game prevention game in class with the children or our "Teen's Interactive Game". Those games cover the same subjects that the officers generally discuss in class.

  • The police will intervene using the powers and duties conferred on them by the law and under theFrame of Reference for Police Presence in Educational Institutions.
  • Special efforts must be made not to trivialize high-risk violent behaviour but at the same time not become alarmist. A careful evaluation of the situation and person involved must be carried out by competent experts.
