Offence Management Bureau
The Offence Management Bureau is responsible for processing the statements of offence issued by the Kativik Regional Police Force and municipal by-law enforcement officers. After being served a statement of offence for a municipal by-law or a section of the Highway Safety Code, an individual has 30 days to inform the Offence Management Bureau or the northern village if he pleads guilty to the violation and to pay the set fine to the Northern village. If the individual pleads not guilty or fails to forward his plea before the deadline, the Offence Management Bureau transfers the file to the Court of Québec so that the case may be tried. Collected fines are transferred to the northern villages where the offences were committed.
