Winnipeg Police Station Duty Offices Reopen

In November 2019, as a result of an unprecedented increase in violent crime, which created a strain on resources, the Winnipeg Police Service underwent a realignment of services. More members were assigned to general patrol and investigative units.

At that time, district station duty offices were closed and centralized to the Headquarters Building from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., 7-days a week. This realignment was temporary. After a reassessment, all district Station Duty offices will re-open on Monday, February 3, 2020.

Headquarters station duty will be open to the public 7-days a week 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  North District, East District, and West District station duty offices will be open Monday to Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. 

During hours of closure, the public is reminded to call 9-1-1 in the case of emergencies. Non-emergency incidents can be reported via our non-emergency line (204)986-6222 or online at .
