Today the Winnipeg Police Service announced it’s Downtown Safety Strategy, as part of the new Strategic Plan 2012-2014 (on page 24).

At our last meeting, we discussed our ideas on how to improve safety downtown, including:
The Report highlights the Winnipeg Police Service’s intention to increase the hours of foot patrols and bike patrols in the area, as well as more consultation with the area’s stakeholders (which hopefully includes us!). It also highlights the Police’s role in Prevention through Environmental Design Assessments (think about walking through those surface parking lots at night, past empty colourless walls, or when streetlights go out!)
This new report will be a topic of discussion at tomorrow’s meeting.
