Statement on safety and security

Since the terrorist attacks in Israel on Saturday, the City of Côte Saint-Luc has increased patrols by Public Security agents around community buildings and met with community officials and police. The Montreal police department (SPVM) has also increased its patrols and is fully aware of security concerns and is taking the appropriate action.

We understand that the Jewish community in Côte Saint-Luc is feeling worried for their safety. The City of Côte Saint-Luc’s main priority in the coming days and weeks will be on security issues. The Jewish community does not stand alone at this difficult time.

What can residents do? The SPVM has asked us to remind you of the following:

  1. If you see something suspicious, or are the victim of intimidation, call 9-1-1 immediately.
  2. The 9-1-1 phone service is the only way to get information to police quickly.
  3. The police have the resources and expertise to analyze your information, piece it together with other information.
  4. The police will share important information with Côte Saint-Luc Public Security.

If you have video footage or photos of something suspicious, you can e-mail it to the SPVM Poste de Quartier 9 at [email protected]. But you should call 9-1-1 first.
