Off-duty Winnipeg police officers are hitting the street on Sunday as part of a new community outreach campaign.
Called Neighbour to Neighbour, the campaign will door-knock and raise awareness to connect with Winnipeg families and hear their priorities for community policing.
“Our priority is keeping families safe. Winnipeggers have always been incredibly supportive of our officers and the ‘Neighbour to Neighbour’ campaign is a chance for us to get out of the cars and on to the doorsteps to say ‘thank you’ and to hear directly from our neighbours about their priorities,” said Winnipeg Police Association president Moe Sabourin.
About 100 officers, cadets, and volunteers will canvass door-to-door in neighbourhoods across the city on November 6. Canvassers will be identified with ‘Neighbour to Neighbour’ volunteer badges.
Sabourin said that this first phase of the ‘Neighbour to Neighbour’ outreach campaign will also include direct-mail to thousands of Winnipeg households.
