Winnipeg Police Service

Winnipeg Police Service General & Online Survey, 2019

The 2019 Winnipeg Police Service public opinion survey was conducted between July 29 and August 3, 2019. This year Advanis, an independent research firm, was successful in the City of Winnipeg tendering process and received the contract to conduct the survey on behalf of the Winnipeg Police Service.  A total of 620 respondents answered over 80 questions concerning their involvement with, and opinion of, the Winnipeg Police Service. The survey questions have, for the most part, remained the same for almost 20 years. This year several of the questions in the survey were slightly modified, as were some of the scales and response options. These adjustments are noted within the report at the appropriate questions.

The questions are generally intended to assess citizens’ involvement with the Service over the past year and many of the survey questions are phrased “In the last year did you …” (in regards to the Winnipeg Police). Thus, the responses generally equate to parts of both the 2018 and 2019 years although the survey was conducted in 2019. The WPS General Survey prior to this one was reported in 2017.

Almost all of the questions were answered by all 620 respondents but several were answered by less. For example, question B9 asks respondents "During the last year were you the victim of a crime that you did not report?" Those who said “yes” (N=88), were asked a follow-up question: B10.1 "Was this a personal or property related crime?"  The follow-up question was not appropriate, or asked of, respondents who were not the victim of a non-reported crime. These citizens “skipped” this question and so the number of respondents who actually answered was less than the total 620 (in this case 88). Throughout this report, where appropriate, reference will be made to the “N” or number of people who answered a specific question. If the “N” is not mentioned, it may be assumed that all 620 respondents answered.

For the second time there was an online survey consisting of 10 questions made available while the telephone survey was being conducted. It should be noted that the nature of on-line surveys have no demographic requirements and are  limited in restricting duplicate entries.  As such the results cannot be used as a scientific representation of the population of Winnipeg and have been kept separate from the General Survey results.
