Bridging the Community-Police Divide: Safety and Security in Winnipeg’s Inner City

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives State of the Inner City Report: 2006 includes a detailed study of community-police relations in Inner City Winnipeg entitled Bridging the Community-Police Divide. The report is based on interviews with 45 residents and businesspeople and 17 community workers in three inner-city neighbourhoods: Centennial, Spence, and William Whyte. Interviews were also conducted with seven members of the Winnipeg Police Service (WPS), including the Chief and a Deputy Chief, to clarify the WPS inner-city policing strategy. This publication is a summary of the larger report, which is available as a part of the State of the Inner City Report: 2006 from the CCPA-Manitoba.
