News Release - Winnipeg Police Service
Thursday, May 28, 2015 Community Invited to Join Our Effort to Restore Our Core!
As part of our on-going effort to create safer streets and stronger communities, Chief Devon Clunis and the Winnipeg Police Service invite the public and media to join us for an overview of the Restore Our Core weekend.
Join us at 11 a.m. on Friday, May 29th at the North End Development Centre (607 Selkirk Avenue), when Chief Clunis will share more information on this collaborative community effort aimed at identifying and addressing some of the smaller issues on and around Selkirk Avenue.
Teams will be in the area tomorrow (Friday, May 29th) and (Saturday, May 30th) from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. taking part in a community clean-up.
Concerned citizens from across Winnipeg are investing most of the sweat equity to make this weekend's effort possible. Members of Winnipeg's business community have come together to underwrite the initiative, while numerous City departments are proud to play a supporting role.
Participating City departments include: Public Works Community Services Fire Paramedics By-law Enforcement Water and Waste City Assessment, 311 Contact Services, and Economic Development
It is part of a larger initiative that has already involved door-to-door visits, informing citizens about the Neighbourhood Liveability by-law, ensuring yards are free of garbage and that properties are in good repair, checking for graffiti and conducting a neighbourhood inventory to assist the community in targeting areas of concern.
Working together we can and will create a culture of safety in Winnipeg.
