News Release - Winnipeg Police Service
August 31, 2016
Funding for Air1 Thermal Imaging Camera The Winnipeg Police Service is pleased to announce that funding for a new thermal imaging camera has been put in place for AIR1. The commitment for complete funding was approved today by the Winnipeg Police Board.
The Province of Manitoba and the City of Winnipeg had each allocated monies for the camera. However, due to exchange rate fluctuations, the price increased, creating a funding shortfall.
The Winnipeg Police Service would like to thank the Winnipeg Police Board, and the Province of Manitoba for their on-going support of policing initiatives. Together, we are building a safer city.
The Winnipeg Police Service looks forward to participating in the upcoming review of Air1.
