Media Team

The Section des communications et relations médias of the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) offers a unique service in North America. Media relations officers are on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

They patrol the entire island of Montréal and rapidly make their way to locations where various incidents occur, in order to collect and transmit relevant information to the media representatives. They are available to respond to media queries at any time.

  • Each year, media relations officers are on site at more than 1,000 events, including crime scenes, demonstrations and other significant events.
  • They also grant about 3,000 media interviews each year and answer over 25,000 phone calls from journalists and media representatives.

The SPVM’s media relations team is composed of one Commander, one Sergeant, six media relations officers, and 4 communication agents which are civilian employees.
