This agreement meets the ministerial obligations to maintain safety in schools and the commitment to maintain a safe and caring school climate, as well as the objective of the commitment to success plan of the Mille- Îles school service center, which consists of ensuring healthy and safe working and learning environments for students and staff.
“We are very happy to collaborate with the RIPTB and to add a resource to our team. The presence of Constable Rheault in our school allows for quick, proactive, and effective interventions to prevent and reduce the risk of wrongdoing in the school and surrounding areas. This project aims for concerted and preventive actions,” explains Jonathan Laflamme.
“The city of Boisbriand is very happy to contribute to this first agreement. Municipal values prompted us to take part in this project, that is to say, to promote a preventive approach and thus create openness and education in respect, collaboration and sharing. We contribute to the development of responsible social behavior with our school and police partners,” adds Ms. Beaudette.
“We support collaboration and consultation in the school environment, the police presence in schools is beneficial and plays an important role in our proactive prevention strategy. We are committed to keeping our young people and our schools safe. The capacity for concerted action by all the players promotes the collaboration of students and parents and is the guarantee of the success of our approach. This new agreement allows a daily presence and promotes positive relations with our young people” said Inspector Martin Charron
