Crime money will help reduce crime
Orford MNA Pierre Reid, on behalf of the Minister of Municipal Affairs and the occupation of territory, public security and the region of Montreal, Martin Coiteux, announced a grant of $42,000 to the Corporation Jeunesse Memphremagog. This contribution comes from the government’s program of investing the money taken from criminal activities, administered by the ministry of Public Security.
“I am happy that the money seized will be put to the use of the Corporation Jeunesse Memphremagog for their project of preventing criminality in youth. This project aims to intervene early to correct behaviour problems that can seriously affect the development of young people,” explained Mr. Reid.
Every year, community organizations that work to prevent criminality share the sum of $1.25 million. The money comes from the re-selling of goods that were obtained illegally and seized during police operations.
