What do the letters stand for though? In French I presume?

Yes in French:
Service de police de la Communauté urbaine de Montréal= SPCUM

Changed after 2002 to:
Service de police de la Ville de Montréal= SPVM

On January 1, 2002, the Service de police de la Communauté urbaine de Montréal (SPCUM) became the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM).

You can type the Ă© by alt character( alt+0233) on an English keyboard.
