    Police of Montreal do not see the problem to a senior officer of the Sûreté du Québec to come do the housework in their police force.

    The Journal has met with a dozen officers to collect their comments regarding the recent changes to the management of the SPVM ; they all requested anonymity because of the climate of the current work.

    “The rivalries with the SQ, it is the surveys that it is happening. Between patrol, it works well generally, ” says a police officer.

    According to the police officers consulted, the arrival of Martin Prud’homme as acting director, will have little impact in the immediate future.

    “It is above our heads all this. On the ground, I don’t see that it will change “, slips another patroller.

    “We will see what is his plan [to improve the work atmosphere] “, he adds.


    All agree that the atmosphere of suspicion lived now was mainly the result of the lack of control on the internal Affairs.

    “It will not be able to change everything overnight. It is necessary to wait, to be patient, ” says an agent.

    If Mr. Prud’homme has communicated by e-mail with its new officers in the evening on Wednesday, those who testified, want to know more about his intentions before making a final judgment.

    “We don’t have enough information on what he wants to do [to worry about]. We will leave the chance to the rider, ” said a final police officer.
