Police Boards

The duties of the police boards are covered under Division 2 of The Police Services Act. The purpose of a police board is to provide civilian governance respecting the enforcement of the law, the maintenance of the public peace and the prevention of crimes in municipalities. Police boards are also required to provide the administrative direction and organization needed to provide an adequate and effective police service in the municipality. The police board works closely with the Chief of Police to help implement strategies and allocate funds. There are currently 11 municipalities with police boards in Manitoba. You can contact your municipal police board through their chairperson.
