The Winnipeg Police Service hosted the 43rd Annual School Safety Patrol Awards ceremony this morning at the Convention Centre.

Since 1936, the Winnipeg Police Service has been involved in the School Safety Patrol Program.  Winnipeg is proud to have had the first fully organized and officially recognized school patrol program in Canada.  Hard to believe the School Safety Patrol Program has been in existence for 81 years.

Every year the patrols are judged on their ability, professionalism and technique while on patrol by the School Education Section of the Winnipeg Police Service.

In 2017, there were approximately 7,000 patrols ensuring our children arrive safely to their schools everyday here in Winnipeg.

The top four City-Wide School Patrol teams are as follows:

2nd Place       

Pacific Junction School – Pembina Trails School Division
Winnipeg Free Press Trophy

Louise Staples, a teacher at Greenway School, was instrumental in starting up the patrol program in Winnipeg.  Every year the most efficient Patrol Captain receives an award in honour of Louise Staples.

The Winnipeg Police Service is pleased to announce that the recipient of the 2017 Louise Staples Award is Bryce McKenzie-Hirayama Oakenwald School – Pembina Trails School Division
