Winnipeg Police Service Handbook

We have partnered with the Winnipeg Police Service to bring you a vast amount of safety information direct from their Community Relations division.  This is the same division that works with Crime Stoppers & manages the Neighbourhood Watch Program.  The information is quite valuable to read and understand. Whether you are a youth, parent, teacher or business owner, the following information will help protect you, your property and the people around you.

This is a publication of Crime Prevention, Winnipeg Police Service, Community Relations Division. It is meant to be a comprehensive compilation of crime prevention information.   The content is current as of February 2014. If there are any discrepancies between the below information, and the Winnipeg Police Service website, the latter is to be taken as fact.
