|In 2005 the Winnipeg Public Works Department
put forward a recommendation that the Park Police be converted to a Park
Patrol and in 2008 Council approved the conversion of the Park Police to
a Park Patrol/ Park Watch with a focus on providing park security, ambassadorship,
and by-law enforcement. More serious and higher risk law enforcement would
be the sole responsibility of the Winnipeg Police. The transformation from
“Police” to Park Patrol was complete by 2010. Car decals and uniforms were
changed, removing the word “police”.
