As part of the process, MNP will be randomly contacting Winnipeg residents by phone to hear their views of the Flight Operations Unit, which was established in 2010, said Winnipeg police.

They’ve also developed an online survey – which went live Wednesday morning – asking the public to share their opinions on the police helicopter.

The survey period closes on Nov. 21 at midnight.
