Neighbourhood Watch Program Re-Launched


The Neighbourhood Watch Program will be re-launched after the Manitoba Government provided $46,000 through the Criminal Forfeiture Fund to rebrand and revitalize the program.


The program is designed to reduce crime by fostering partnerships between law enforcement and the community. This funding will allow the police to provide tools to increase community awareness, best crime reporting practices, and offer crime deterrent strategies. In the upcoming weeks, the Winnipeg Police Service will meet with current Neighbourhood Watch block captains to share support strategies and to highlight how it begins with these captains.

The Neighbourhood Watch Program is free and open to all residents of Winnipeg. More information is available on the WPS Crime Prevention webpage.
