The Winnipeg Police Service and the Winnipeg Police Board will be holding public consultations to discuss community priorities in policing.
“Crime prevention and community safety are important to all residents. We want to hear from the citizens and use their input to inform the development of the WPS Strategic Plan and our priorities for the next five years,” said City Councillor Scott Fielding, Chair of the WPB.
Public forums will be held in August in all four police districts, along with a dedicated meeting for Aboriginal and newcomer communities, according to a statement sent from the City.
“This is the first joint strategic planning session for the WPB and WPS. We are looking forward to citizen input about policing and crime prevention,” said Chief Devon Clunis.
