2016 Consultation Results
From May 5-June 8, 2015, the Winnipeg Police Board hosted three community consultation meetings across Winnipeg. Each meeting was attended by members of the Winnipeg Police Board and members of the Winnipeg Police Service.
The purpose of this year’s community consultation meetings was to provide citizens with ongoing opportunities for feedback on the 2015-2019 Strategic Plan for the Winnipeg Police Service. The strategic plan is updated each year to ensure it reflects current community priorities.
Feedback from the Board’s consultation meetings
You can find below the summaries of citizens’ questions and comments from each of the community consultation meetings.
The Board had prepared a set of seven questions that it posed to meeting attendees after giving a presentation on the 2015-2019 Strategic Plan for the Winnipeg Police Service:
- Are there any parts of the Winnipeg Police Board’s strategic plan that stood out for you?
- What are the biggest safety challenges in your community?
- What are your ideas for making your community safer?
- Police budgets have increased across the country, including Winnipeg. What are your thoughts in regard to policing costs?
- What should the Police Service do to earn greater trust and confidence?
- When we report back on our progress a year from now, what do you want to hear?
- Do you have any other comments you would like to share?
These questions also formed the basis of the Board’s comment forms and online comment form for collecting written submissions.
