The Winnipeg Police Athletic Association (WPAA) became the Winnipeg Police Association (WPA) March 16, 1972 in advance of the Unicity amalgamation of 1974. At that time, all police associations in the Greater Winnipeg area became members of the newly minted WPA.
The Cool 2Be Kind campaign is an initiative of the Winnipeg Police Association and focuses on teaching youth in grades K-8 the value of being kind. Entering our eighth year, this positive behavior initiative outlines the benefits of being kind to others and making good choices in school and in life.
The 95th Annual Winnipeg Police Association Charity Ball in support of the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba (CHFM) was another huge success. The WPA Charity Ball is the longest running annual charity function of its kind in North America.
