Belgian delegation visit

From September 23 to 27 2013,  ICPC received a Belgian delegation. This visit was the last in the exchange program between Quebec and Belgium established in 2009 by the Brussels, Wallonia / Quebec Joint Standing Committee. The collaborative project involved ICPC and the Belgian Forum for Urban Safety on the theme Youth Gangs / Street Gangs, as well as the City of Brussels and the Centre jeunesse de Montréal – Institut universitaire (CJM-IU) (Montreal Youth Centre – University Institute).

Several topics were discussed during the visit such as intervention in the Intensive Monitoring Programme CJM-IU, street prostitution in the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve neighborhood, neighbourhood mediation, and evaluation of crime prevention programmes. Meetings with the City of Montreal Police (SPVM) and the Agence métropolitaine de transport (AMT) (Metropolitan Transport Agency) were also held. Finally, thanks to the collaboration with the Social Diversity Department of the City of Montreal, the delegation had the opportunity to participate in the Municipal Stakeholder Forum “Occupancy of the public domain: urban safety, homelessness, addiction and mental health”.
