It's Official, Montreal Has Abolished Police Ticket Quotas

Now they can focus on what they're actually paid to do.
It's Official, Montreal Has Abolished Police Ticket Quotas

For years there were rumors going around that Montreal's cops had ticket quotas to fill every month. 

It made a lot of sense after all, that's why cops spend so much time setting up speed traps, and it's also why they were more aggressive towards the end of the month.

After denying it for years, the government finally admitted that the Denis Coderre administration was actually handing out bonus of up to 8% to police officers who reached their quotas. 

But now, Valerie Plante has announced that the quota has officially been abolished.  

This is amazing news especially considering that the police would actually ignore a lot of their daily tasks on certain days to focus on handing out fines.

Now they can focus on what they're actually paid to do, to serve and protect the public, instead of trying to trap us like criminals.
