Winnipeg Police Board


Manitoba’s Police Services Act requires the Winnipeg Police Board to provide civilian governance and the administrative direction and organization required to provide adequate and effective police services in Winnipeg. The Act goes on to state that the Winnipeg Police Board, like other police boards in Manitoba, will carry out this mandate by establishing policies for the effective management of the police service.

Drawing on the expertise of the Chief of Police and other members of the Winnipeg Police Service, the Board establishes policies for the Service. The Service uses its own policies and procedures to implement the Board’s policies.

The Board will publish its draft policies on the agendas for its regular public meetings. This gives citizens an opportunity to review and comment on the draft policies. As policies are finalized and approved by the Board, they will be published here.

The Winnipeg Police Service also adheres to policing standards from the Commission for Law Enforcement Accreditation (CALEA). You can contact the Board for more information about these standards, or review a list of the standards on CALEA's website.
