A safer, better, fairer … better Winnipeg.

Judy unveils first piece of crime-prevention plan

Posted on August 16th 2010

Community leader Sel Burrows discusses crime issues affecting his neighbourhood during Monday’s announcement.

As a first step toward bringing Winnipeg crime numbers down, Judy Wasylycia-Leis today announced the expansion of the successful PowerLine crime-deterrent program and implementation of the City Watch crime-reporting initiative proven successful in B.C.

The two crime-deterrent programs are part of a broader multi-tiered strategy to begin reversing Winnipeg’s crime culture, strengthening neighbourhood safety and empowering citizens to support the efforts of our police.

“The current administration at City Hall hasn’t come forward with a detailed crime-prevention strategy after six full years in office, and that needs to change,” Judy said at the announcement today.

“We must do better for Winnipeg families who deserve to feel safe in their homes and on the street. It’s time to replace the rhetoric at City Hall with real action to start reversing the crime trend that affects every neighbourhood in our city.”
