Police officers are able to trust each other with their lives having the confidence that their partner will always do their part to protect them in any situation. During this current pandemic every Manitoban should be able to have the same confidence knowing that everyone else is doing their part.

Please follow the Public Health Orders set out by the Province – your fellow Manitoban is counting on you!

If you need to report someone that is not complying with Public Health Orders please call the Manitoba Government Inquiry office at 1-866-626-4862.

Message from Chief Ryan Hunt:

I want to say a huge THANK YOU!! to all health care workers during this unprecedented time. “Thank You” doesn’t even quite seem to be enough but that’s the only words we got. This is a difficult time for all of us but this virus has dropped a huge burden directly onto the shoulders of our health care professionals. They are working long hours with extra shifts night & day, 7 days a week to do their absolute very best to try and stay on top of this - and they do all of that for each of us – not for themselves. I stand in awe of their hard work and dedication to the health and safety of all residents of this province. As police, we are accustomed to being prepared to run towards an emergency while others run from it but this is beyond law enforcement yet that is exactly what health care professionals are doing all across this province and all across this globe. I find it discouraging to hear stories of persons who have been advised to self isolate or self quarantine but yet don’t take it seriously. With our health care professionals working so diligently on the front lines and spending time away from their homes and families to protect us all, the least any of us can do is stay inside the safety of our homes when asked to do so. Grocery store workers have even gone above and beyond – working tirelessly stocking shelves and making deliveries so that we can still get the items we need. 14 days of isolation is a short period of time in the grand scheme of things. We have to keep in mind that this isn’t just about us – we are all in this together and we are all counting on each other to do their part.
This is also not a time for fear and negativity. Sure, there is a lot of uncertainty right now but let’s not add to our anxiety by speculating about how bad things are going to get. Let’s focus only on verified facts and not dwell on thoughts or ideas that haven’t been confirmed. I think I read somewhere that none of us by worrying can add a single hour to our life. Like I said before, we are all in this together and we will all get through this together and we will all be better and stronger and closer than ever before.

Let’s do our Part!!

Chief Ryan Hunt
