Home Smart Initiative Launch
As previously released, the Winnipeg Police Service has seen an increase in the reports of residential Break and Enters and Property Crime in the City of Winnipeg.
The Winnipeg Police Service Community Support Division is launching the William Whyte Home Smart Safety Initiative. Officers will provide information on steps which can be taken to create a safe environment and safer communities.
This neighbourhood was chosen as the first location for this initiative due to a notable increase in property related crimes based on crime analysis. Other communities may be considered in the future if there is a higher than average property crime rate identified.
Approximately 50 officers, cadets, and volunteers will be walking door to door in the area, meeting with local residents and providing feedback and tips regarding home security.
Also present will be the area Divisional Commander, Jamie Blunden, and Divisional Commander Gord Friesen of Community Support Division, as well as members of the Bear Clan and The Salvation Army.
Most property crimes are preventable. Take away the opportunity and help keep your home safe. For more information and additional safety tips, please visit the Winnipeg Police Service website at Home Smart Safety Initiative.
