Officers, Cadets in William Whyte Encouraging Residents to Make the Right Call
The Winnipeg Police Service will have an increased presence in the William Whyte community as Cadets, officers from the Street Crime Unit, Community Support Unit and North District go to door-to-door sharing information on:
  ·         the role community members can play in crime prevention;
  ·         how to connect with the Winnipeg Police Service; and
  ·         the community partners working to help us create stronger and safer communities.
Our goal is to generate additional intelligence on the root causes of the violence that is occurring in these areas while ensuring residents are aware of the role they play in helping create stronger and safer communities.
In addition to distributing informational brochures, officers and cadets will be engaging with the community to address any concerns or questions people in these areas may have regarding violent crime, substance abuse, as well as give them the tools to report crime-related activity and strategies for exiting gang life. 
The Make the Right Call initiative is one of the tools the Service is using as part of its broader efforts to reduce violence and drug addiction in our communities as identified in our 2018 Business Plan. The growing epidemic of meth addiction is creating challenges to meet these goals.
The Winnipeg Police Service recognizes that we cannot solve this problem alone. In addition to the work being done by our frontline members responding to crime, we continue to work with our community partners to support those addicted to drugs, and help lessen the problems that it creates in neighbourhoods throughout Winnipeg.
The Winnipeg Police Service is grateful for the support of our community partners, including the Addictions Foundation of Manitoba, the Gang Action Interagency Network (GAIN), Bear Clan, Aboriginal Youth Opportunities and committed citizens who share our commitment to a culture of safety for all.
