Police, employees face harassment: Havixbeck

  • Print

WINNIPEG Police Service employees continue to be harassed in the vicinity of the Public Safety Building, charged Charleswood-Tuxedo Coun. Paula Havixbeck, calling on the city to ensure there is safe parking for police at the new headquarters on Graham Avenue.

Two city police officers and one civilian employee have been victimized over the past two months in a pair of incidents, Havixbeck said Wednesday on the floor of city council.

She did not disclose the nature of the incidents, but said police are concerned they will have nowhere safe to park when the police service moves into its $194-million new home in the former Canada Post Building.

In 2010, the Ontario labour-relations board revealed Winnipeg police have been harassed by criminal gangs.

The Ontario body revealed the information as part of a decision about whether Toronto police should wear name tags.
