Winnipeg police and cadets will be going door-to-door in the William Whyte neighbourhood to discuss crime prevention.
Police say officers are making the rounds to inform residents how the community can play a role in reporting and preventing crime through the Make the Right Call initiative.
“Our goal is to generate additional intelligence on the root causes of the violence that is occurring in these areas while ensuring residents are aware of the role they play in helping create stronger and safer communities,” police said in a release.
Police will also be educating residents on how to connect with the police service and sharing information on the community partners working to help police create stronger and safer communities.
Police admit the growing epidemic of meth addiction is creating challenges for the service to meet certain crime-prevention goals. Police are working with the Addictions Foundation of Manitoba, the Gang Action Interagency Network (GAIN), Bear Clan, Aboriginal Youth Opportunities and citizens to create safer communities.
