64.3. Where the territory of a municipality to which the obligation provided in section 64 applies is not under the jurisdiction of a municipal police force, the Sûreté du Québec shall be entrusted in accordance with section 39 with maintaining peace, order and public safety, preventing crime and offences under the laws of Québec and seeking out offenders.
The municipality must, in this case, pay to the Government, in accordance with the regulation made under paragraph 10 of section 6.1, the amount established pursuant to the said regulation.
The Minister of Public Security may, with the consent of the municipality referred to in the first paragraph, confer the responsibility to act in its territory on the police force of another municipality which accepts such responsibility. In such case, the municipalities may enter into an agreement, a copy of which must be sent to the Minister, regarding the amount payable by the former to the latter; failing such an agreement, the person in charge of collecting the amount referred to in the second paragraph shall pay an equivalent compensation to the latter municipality.
