Josée Laganière simultaneously completed her bachelor's degree in Criminology at the Université de Montréal as well as her diploma in Police Technology. In 1999, she began her career with the SPVM (Service de police de la Ville de Montréal). In the same year, she joined the team of Police Technology teachers at John Abbott College where she shared her expertise with the next generation. In 2003, she was one of the very first police officers to benefit from the training “Intervenir avec une personne dont l’état mental présente un risque” (Dealing with people whose mental health constitutes a risk) provided by Urgence psychosociale-justice.
Since then, she has further developed her skills on how to intervene with this specific clientele as part of her position as Community Relations Officer. Josée Laganière has 31 years of experience in community actions. She was nominated at the SPVM Excellence Gala and received the award for Best Strategic Approach to problem solving from the Réseau Intersection du ministère de la Sécurité publique.
