The Manitoba government will fund 10 more police officers and 10 more auxiliary cadets for the downtown to the Winnipeg Police Service.
The RCMP will receive two more officers, while the Brandon Police Service will receive one more. Manitoba’s Public Safety Investigations Unit will get an additional investigator.
“I appreciate the support from the provincial government,” Chief McCaskill said. “The new police officers and cadets will be a welcome addition to the Winnipeg Police Service to help us meet the needs of the citizens of Winnipeg.”
