Crime & Safety

We'll be tough on crime the right way, and end chronic homelessness.

A Manitoba NDP Government will:

  • Make communities safer with our 5-point crime strategy:

    • Stronger bail reforms to keep communities safe
    • New Unexplained Wealth Act to crack down on drug traffickers.
    • $300 rebate for security systems to help families and businesses stay safe.  
    • Hiring 100 mental health workers to work alongside law enforcement 
    • Ending chronic homelessness in two terms by connecting people with housing and mental health supports.  
  • Reduce Violent Crime:

    • Be tough on crime in the right way with real consequences for offenders and more support for police.  
    • Make downtown safer and help families stay safe at home.
    • Reduce youth crime by developing a comprehensive public safety strategy that brings together law enforcement, community safety patrols, educators, advocates and families.
    • Address the root causes of crime and improve supports to set kids on the right path with more recreation and opportunities in their communities, like a universal meals program and more funding to local organizations.
  • Protect vulnerable populations:

    • Provide supports to keep Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two-Spirited Peoples safe and help MMIWG2S+ families navigate the justice system.
  • Work with municipalities and community organizations to make our communities safer:

    • Help municipalities pay for policing by ensuring municipalities have adequate funding going forward for police budgets
    • Work with police and community organizations to reduce crime and connect more people with housing and mental health supports
    • Replace the Dauphin jail Brian Pallister and Heather Stefanson closed with a new Centre for Justice.
