Future Women In Law Enforcement

The Winnipeg Police Service, the RCMP and Canada Border Services Agency have partnered together to host a one day workshop on Saturday, May 27, 2017 - Future Women In Law Enforcement (FWILE).

Our agencies recognize the vital role that female front-line officers play in our commitment to protect and serve our communities and country. Through this workshop, we will deliver a creative and interactive learning experience for young women interested in law enforcement careers, foster these ambitions, and empower them to identify and unleash their individual potential.

Various activities are scheduled to take place, including interactive case studies, round table discussions, specialized information stations, and some special guest speakers. The intention is to showcase what participants’ existing skills are relevant to a career in law enforcement.

Approximately 60 women from across the province are scheduled to attend, as well as numerous officers and civilian members who will be facilitating the workshop.

Old Exhibition Grounds – Statement from Chief Danny Smyth

One of the guiding principles of the Winnipeg Police Service is to build bridges with our diverse communities, and enhance the quality of life for people who live, work, and play in this city. To that end, we as an organization know how important it is to consult any community before changes are thrust upon the neighbourhoods we serve.  

The Winnipeg Police Service is planning to replace the existing District 3 police station on Hartford, originally built for the 40-man West Kildonan Police Department. It is an aging structure that no longer meets the needs of our members, but more importantly, the northwest district of the city.

The preferred site is the Old Exhibition Grounds on McPhillips Street. The site is much bigger than what our needs require, and as such, we are undergoing the process of determining the best way to utilize a portion of the property.

Our plan was to conduct extensive discussions with local stakeholders (including community residents and the Nomads, among others) before any option was adopted. The intent was to cause the least amount of disruption as possible.  City Councillor for the area, Mike Pagtakhan was engaged in those discussions. He identified which organizations and people needed to be involved to determine how to lessen any impact this project would have.

Before we could even begin on this consultation process, it was circumvented by unfortunate and disappointing remarks by Councillor Ross Eadie that needlessly inflamed the situation.

All stakeholders have my word, that before any decision is reached, their voices will be heard, and their concerns taken into consideration.

Thank you.
