Parents of students want more security

In Saint, the parents of the Marie-Joseph Catholic private school believe that the presence of a security guard is a "very modest step" to strengthen. The city is looking at it... The security system, set up by the City, around 174 public nursery and elementary schools and 16 private schools under contract, was set up at the beginning of the school year.

Quarter Saint, the parents of the Catholic private school Marie-Joseph, located close to the Church of St. Rocha; do not hide their concern and dismay.

"For the start of the school year, there was no police force in front of our school, just grandma traffic and a safety vest, as before," says Jean-Remy Evelix, parent of a student. The City acknowledges that it has had "a problem" with the private surveillance company, Hexagon, but that "everything is settled" since Friday morning, with the sending of one of their security guard in front of this school.

Except that parents of students of Marie-Joseph want more. "Without sinking into psychosis, putting a vigil, unarmed of course, in front of the only private Catholic school in this sensitive area where many young people have radicalized, is, in our opinion, a very modest measure," continues Jean, door "Parental worry, could not we beef up this device a little more, or extend the rounds of Operation Sentinel soldiers to the doors of our school?"

"Same device for all schools"
As many requests as the assistant education, Lauran intends to study closely. There is a grandpa, yellow vest for two municipal policemen or a private security officer per school group. "This device, says Lauran, is the same for all schools, whether public or private under contract."

Neon orange armband
To make the presence of private security agents more visible and reassure parents, the elected to add an accessory to their safety equipment: "We will provide them a neon orange armband, marked security."

There remains the case of schools in the sector of Moulin where the safety device, according to teachers unions, is not expected at the time of entry and exit of classes.
"This sector is classified as a priority security zone (ZSP) .According to an agreement established by the State and the prefecture of A.-M., the supervision of the schools belonging to these ZSPs is ensured by the national police. Closer to law enforcement to know what is the device that has been put in place. And we will advise. "
