About Professional Standards
The Winnipeg Police Service is committed to ensuring its members serve their community in a safe, professional, and respectful manner.
The Professional Standards Unit is attached to the Winnipeg Police Service Executive and reports directly to the Chief of Police. The mandate of the Professional Standards Unit is to maintain the integrity of the Winnipeg Police Service. It is staffed with one Inspector, one Staff Sergeant, two Sergeants, eight Detective Sergeants, and two civilian Administrative Assistants.
The Professional Standards Unit is responsible for managing complaints against members of the Winnipeg Police Service; this includes complaints about employee conduct, Service policies, or service delivery. The Professional Standards Unit investigates these complaints, or when appropriate assigns them to the member’s Division or Unit for follow-up.
The Professional Standards Unit also provides training to members to ensure they understand the accountability and responsibility they have to their community.
The confidence of the public in the integrity of the Winnipeg Police Service must be maintained by the knowledge that the Professional Standards Unit will conduct a full investigation of allegations in a fair, impartial, and thorough manner.
