The Winnipeg Police Association announced Friday that it’s partnering with Wounded Warriors Canada (WWC).
WPA president Moe Sabourin said members can access resources related to trauma, family issues, PTSD service dogs, and more.
“Policing is an extremely difficult profession and keeping Winnipeg families safe can take a toll on our members’ wellness,” said Sabourin.
“It was clear from the results of the recent Winnipeg Police Service mental health and workplace survey our members want and need more support and care.”
The survey, released earlier this year, reported that anti-police public opinion, the COVID-19 pandemic, negative media attention and internal politics all played a part in issues leading to a toxic work environment.
Through the arrangement, WWC is providing support for all current and retired Winnipeg police members and their families.
