News Release - Winnipeg Police Service

Winnipeg Police Service

Public Advisory
Over the past several days the Winnipeg Police Service has been made aware of a number of incidents where two individuals have engaged members of the public and identified themselves as 'undercover' officers.
   
The Winnipeg Police Service reminds members of the public that all sworn officers are required to carry a badge and a warrant card to identify themselves as police officers. Officers working, but not in uniform (plain clothes capacity) will have a Winnipeg Police Service badge affixed to their belt directly in front of their sidearm.

   
   
Police vehicles that would be involved in traffic stops will have a combination of red and blue coloured flashing lights. These will be located either on the roof of the vehicle, or mounted behind the front windshield by the rear-view mirror. In addition, flashing white lights may be located within the front grill.
   
The safest strategy when approached by anyone in an official capacity, whether for fundraising campaigns, meter readers, public surveys, or law enforcement, is to confirm credentials and identification.
