A report expected to recommend cuts and operational changes to the Winnipeg Police Service will be released Tuesday.
Coun. Scott Fielding, chairman of the Winnipeg Police Board, said there will be a council seminar Tuesday morning to hear details of the operational review of the WPS by Matrix Consulting, and the document will be released publicly shortly afterwards.
Fielding said police board members have already been briefed on the Matrix document, adding copies have also been provided to the WPS executive and the police union.
The Matrix report is expected to propose major cuts and operational changes to the WPS.
The Free Press reported at the end of August a preliminary draft of the review recommended eliminating the vice and cold case units, reducing the number of officers in the stolen auto unit, and shutting down an internal forensics labs and contracting out the work to another agency.
