SQ (Sûreté du Québec)

The SQ (Sûreté du Québec) is the police force for the province of Québec, Canada with the jurisdiction to prevent and suppress law offences throughout the entire province Québec. The Sûreté du Québec acts under the authority of the Québec Minister of Public Safety.

The Sûreté also has the jurisdiction to prevent and suppress offences to municipal regulations in those municipal territories for which it provides police services. The emblems used on the badges of SQ police uniforms since 1870 can be viewed here.

"Its specialized services are called on to intervene with the municipal and Native police forces and to conduct joint operations with these. The Sûreté du Québec also plays a consultative role in the organization of police services in Native communities."

"In the framework of its legal mandate, the Sûreté du Québec implements a number of federal laws on Québec territory. Among these are mainly the Criminal code, the Food and Drugs Act, the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, the Firearms Act, the Explosives Act, and the Canada Shipping Act. Sûreté du Québec furthermore implements numerous Québec laws, notably the Code de la sécurité routière (Highway safety code), the Loi sur l'assurance automobile (Automobile insurance act), the Loi sur les loteries, les concours publicitaires et les appareils d'amusement (Act respecting lotteries, racing, publicity contests, and amusement machines, Loi sur les explosifs (Act respecting explosives), the Loi sur les agences d'investigation ou de sécurité (Act respecting detective or security agencies), the Loi sur les infractions en matière de boissons alcooliques (Act respecting offences relating to alcoholic beverages), and the Act respecting liquor permits, and the Loi sur la Société des alcools (Liquor commission act)."
