This mobilization operation – organized in the context of the health crisis – begins this Tuesday and will be held until October 16.
“The objective is to raise awareness among young people and educate them about compliance with the decree, such as wearing a mask and social distancing,” said Sandra Dion, spokesperson for the Service de police de la Ville de Québec (SPVQ) .
Visits will be held mainly at lunchtime, near schools and where young people congregate.
This awareness-raising activity is held as part of a concerted national operation.
The SPVQ specifies that the purpose of the operation is not to issue statements of offense, but to “discuss with young people and demystify the decrees with them”, concludes the spokesperson.
