2017 Winnipeg Police Service Public Opinion Survey

Every two years, the Winnipeg Police Service uses market survey representatives to conduct a public opinion telephone survey. This year's survey will take place between May 23 - 27, 2017. Representatives will contact citizens to hear and document their view of the Winnipeg Police Service. Citizens will be afforded the opportunity to share their beliefs related to crime and public safety. Telephone calls will be made randomly to all areas within the City of Winnipeg. Surveys will take less than 20 minutes to complete.
The public is also invited to complete a shorter, online version of the survey by visiting the Winnipeg Police Service website.
Once complete, the results will be made public and will be posted on the Winnipeg Police Service website. The Winnipeg Police Service will examine the results for use within the 2015-2019 Strategic Plan.
The Winnipeg Police Service thanks all those who take the time to participate in the survey.
