The research team of the IPAM project (police intervention for mistreated seniors), funded by the federal government, is now performing data collection (survey to all SPVM police officers, group interviews in two neighbourhood stations, observation of police practice with seniors, etc. ) and it is in full swing. This has already produced some positive results. The collaboration with the SPVM is very constructive and the project is well received by the community. For more information on this research project, go to the "Activities" section, and then on "Current research projects".
