The Winnipeg Police Board establishes multi-year strategic plans that set out priorities and goals for the Winnipeg Police Service. The current plan covers the period from 2015-2019.
The Manitoba Police Commission requires all police boards in Manitoba to develop strategic plans. The Winnipeg Police Board adopted its first strategic plan for the Winnipeg Police Service in 2015.
How to have a say on the strategic plan
The Board is responsible for ensuring police services in Winnipeg are delivered in a manner consistent with what the community needs, values and expects. To accomplish this, the Board takes community input into consideration during the planning process.
How the Board develops its strategic plan
To develop its strategic plan, the Board follows a set of steps outlined in its Rules of Practice and Procedure. The Board studies trends and data about policing and crime in Winnipeg, then releases a report on its findings. Based on those findings, the Board decides if a new strategic plan is needed, or if the existing strategic plan can be updated for the coming year. The Board consults with the Police Chief and collects community input. The final strategic plan is adopted at a Board meeting and made public.
