Enhanced security and safety measures at Police Headquarters
The Winnipeg Police Service has upgraded safety and security measures in the lobby of the Police Headquarters Service Centre, located at 245 Smith Street.
In an effort to maintain a safe and secure environment for visitors and police service members, walk-through metal detectors will be used to screen visitors at the point of entry.
The changes take effect Sunday, February 20,2022 and will impact anyone attending Police Headquarters.
All members of the public wishing to enter the Service Centre area are subject to security screening. Members of the public are not required to comply with this screening, however, those who do not, will not be allowed to enter.
The security screening will include a two-stage process:
- Mandatory bag check and non-invasive person search using a walk-through metal detector.
- Based on the outcome of step one, a second security screening with a handheld metal detector and/or a physical pat-down, as necessary.
These new security measures are similar to those in place upon entry to the Law Courts Building, airports and large special event venues.
