Citizen's Action Network Provides Neighbourhood Safety Solutions

October 10, 2012

Citizen’s Action Network (C.A.N.) - is a Network formed by the Winnipeg Police Service in conjunction with the City of Winnipeg Community Services Department as a way of safely receiving information from the public.

The information is received by a member of the Community designated as the (CAN Coordinator), from members of the public that have neighbourhood concerns or problems including but not limited to derelict vehicles/housing, overflowing garbage bins, and other neighbourhood issues.

The CAN Coordinator then forwards the information to WPS, "311", or Manitoba Justice - Public Safety as applicable. The information received is not to be of an emergency nature, in progress, or meant to bypass any current reporting procedures.

CAN is the only Community information network endorsed by the Winnipeg Police Service.
