Montréal, May 27, 2017
The directors of ICM presented a very positive report of their first annual Info-Crime Week in Montreal which took place from May 7 to 13 last.
Established as part of the 30th anniversary of the organization, ICM week definitely achieved its principal objective, namely to increase the visibility of the organization through a series of intense activities. « The setting up of information booths at Place Versailles in the east and Place-Vertu in the west, as well as the Montreal North Borough with PDQ 39 during their Open House day, the visits to the various media on Wednesday, and the presentation of our new Web site and Facebook page gave amazing visibility to the program, providing the chance to contact thousands of people, made it a great success », declared the president and general manager, Jean Touchette.
An activity which will continue into the future !
Info-Crime Week in Montreal was established thanks to the idea of a member of the board of directors of ICM, André Turcotte, a retired investigator who has served as a volunteer with the organization for several years. The directors of Info-Crime Montreal certainly plan to continue the event next year, around the same dates, by including other activities. This will include the information booths which are one of the most important activities since they permit an interaction with citizens not only to explain the program but also to answer their questions and preoccupations. The initiative also is the opportunity to give away some promotional items with the ICM logo.
