Body Cameras For The Winnipeg Police Service

0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!


We want to make policing safer for everyone in Winnipeg. With this idea in mind, we think it would be best that the Winnipeg Police Service adopt body cameras for their on-duty officers. 

In 2013, after the shooting of Sammy Yatim, an 18-year-old boy in Toronto, a Supreme Court justice had recommended that every police force adopt body worn cameras. The WPS originally adopted body worn cameras for some short time in 2015, before abandoning the project in favour of purchasing a "Terradyne Gurkha MPV" (Armoured Vehicle) for over $343,000. 

It is clear that the WPS has other interests in mind. Cameras make it safer for everyone, police officers and citizens. It is an expenditure worth the money, and it demonstrates the willingness of our police to listen to our concerns.
