As part of their annual Opération Cisaille 2.0, Sûreté du Québec officers are asking for the public’s help in helping stem cannabis production in the region, grown both indoors and out. All cannabis grown by users contravenes the criminal code, whether for trafficking, possession, or production.
Without compromising their own security, citizens who notice suspicious people in their neighbourhood can communicate with the SQ’s Central criminal information at 1 800 659-4264 or Crime Stoppers at 1 888 711-1800.
All information gathered by the police, including people circulating in ATVs at dusk, people going into fields waving flashlights in a back-and-forth manner will be analyzed by police to counter any activities related to indoor and outdoor plantations.
In 2014, the SQ conducted a complete review of Cisaille program in order to curb the expansion of the production and trafficking of cannabis in Quebec.
