Cops for Kids - Fraud Awareness
Over the past couple months, the organizers of Winnipeg Cops for Kids have been notified that citizens in Winnipeg have been solicited for either cash or credit card information over the phone by a "Cops for Kids," organization.
The callers have been described as being overly aggressive and do not accept a polite, "no," when support has been declined.
The Winnipeg Cops for Kids Police Service bicycle relay team does not conduct any fundraising over the phone and certainly would never use an aggressive manner to purport their message.
The public is reminded that they can turn down any individual that seems suspicious, and are asked to call the police non-emergency number at 204-986-6222 if they require information from the Winnipeg Police Service.
If people are interested in learning more about the cause and want to learn more about how to support in a safe manner, they can visit the team's website at
The team will begin their 12th tour on September 10, 2018 when they begin their ride from the WPS headquarters to Tucson, AZ all in support of the Children's Wish Foundation.

For further information contact either:
   Constable Rob Carver, Public Information Officer
   Constable Jay Murray, Public Information Officer
   Constable Tammy Skrabek, Public Information Officer
   Kelly Dehn, Manager of Public Affairs
