Crime Prevention Funding Available – Your Ideas

Council just approved funding for a new Crime Prevention initiative!

A Community Safety and Crime Prevention Program has been established to support community-level activities that:

  • strengthen local crime prevention and community safety efforts,
  • promote the exchange of information between community residents,
  • help build closer relationships between communities and the Winnipeg Police Service.

Do you have any ideas to prevent crime in the neighbourhood? Funding up to $5000 may be approved for ideas that:

  • Reduce preventable crime
  • Increase communication and knowledge amongst community members
  • Encourage reporting of criminal or suspicious activity
  • Improve levels of personal and neighbourhood security
  • Help to reduce the fear of crime

*Preference will be given to applications that focus on preventing illicit drug activity*

This is a good grass roots initiative for the community. This is a new funding program where anything is possible – what are your ideas ?
