Prevention and community policing
A policeman from MRC Portneuf station was arrested via a post on social networks in recent weeks. In this one, little Philémon (5 years old), who lives in St-Alban, recounts how he picked up cans to accumulate the money needed to buy a cage for his “Cowboy” hamster. After talking to his superior, the agent contacted his work partners. As a group, they organized something to recognize Philemon’s efforts. The boy and his mother were invited to the MRC Portneuf post to allow him to visit the facilities. The child was obviously sitting in a patrol car. At the end of the visit, a nice surprise awaits him. The members of the unit gathered their cans and they offered everything to him. The child was really impressed with the size of the bag. He greatly appreciated and benefited from his meeting with the police and a visit to the station. Furthermore, his efforts allowed him to get the cage he coveted for his hamster.
