Winnipeg Police Board


The Winnipeg Police Board’s seven members each sit on committees to which many of the Board’s governance and oversight functions are delegated.  These committees report to the Board at public meetings, providing updates on their activities and making recommendations.

The Board currently has five committees:

  1. The Budget and Finance Committee receives updates on the respective budgets of the Board and the Winnipeg Police Service.  It makes recommendations to the Board related to preparing and submitting budget estimates for the Winnipeg Police Service to City Council.
  2. The Governance Committee leads development of the Board’s rules of practice and procedure and the Board’s policies for the adequate and effective management of the Winnipeg Police Service.  It also leads work on projects that support the Board’s governance framework.
  3. The Indigenous Liaison Committee serves as the Board’s point of contact for the Indigenous Council on Policing and Crime Prevention.  It advises the Board on how to consider and implement the Council’s advice.
  4. The Risk Management and Audit Committee leads the review and assessment of the Winnipeg Police Service’s risk management framework and performance audits.  It also leads the Board’s internal risk management and evaluation activities.
  5. All Board members, along with members of the Winnipeg Police Service Executive, sit on the Strategic Planning Steering Committee.  This committee provides direction on the organization of annual community consultation meetings and the development of multi-year strategic plans for the Winnipeg Police Service.
