WINNIPEG — A new crime prevention and safety awareness guide was launched Thursday as a hands-on educational resource on curbing crime in the city’s West End.
The latest edition builds on the first printed copy in 2008, outlining ways for businesses and individuals to prevent becoming a victim of crime.
“The West End’s flourishing business community can utilize the Partners in Prevention Safety Guide for effective crime prevention strategies, community-based programming and personal safety tips,” said Cindy Gilroy, City Councillor for Daniel McIntyre and chairperson, Winnipeg Committee for Safety.
The guide was launched by the West End BIZ in partnership with Winnipeg police and the WCS.
Digital copies of the guide can be downloaded from WestEndBIZ.ca. Physical copies can be picked up at the BIZ office, 581 Portage Avenue.
