Indigenous Partnerships Section
The Indigenous Partnerships Section works with Winnipeg’s Indigenous citizens, to provide information on public safety issues and help create partnerships which encourage social development. It also assists the City of Winnipeg with recruitment and initiatives for hiring and promoting a more diverse workforce. It does this by:
Having awareness of current issues that are affecting the Indigenous community and working directly with all affected peoples.
Providing education and awareness training to the Indigenous community on a variety of policing topics.
Being part of the Indigenous community in the traditional and the political sense. This includes belonging to organizations when appropriate, providing advice, and supporting strong leadership within the Indigenous community itself.
Representing the Service at various Indigenous events and ceremonies.
Facilitating training on Indigenous related issues to members of the Service, especially for newly hired cadets and constables.
