    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

For those of you who follow these informations, the municipality of Joliette (and 6 others from that area) in the north-eastern suburb of Montreal dismantled their regional police force to contract the police services with the Sûreté du Québec as of Avril 1st. All of the 71 officers (and a few civilian) where transfered and integrated in the provincial police which now brings this force with around 5300 sworn officers and 119 detachments.

All of the frequencies use by the municipal department are now use by the municipality since the Sûreté du Québec have their own.

Other then the provincial police, the Sûreté du Québec, as of April 1st there are now 34 municipal police forces in this province if we don't count the Aboriginal police forces.
