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.
Since 2008, the Winnipeg Police Association has led an amazing group of volunteers in the fight against prostate cancer. The Motorcycle Ride for Dad raises funds for prostate cancer research and education through the Prostate Cancer Fight Foundation.
Winnipeg Police Officers are parents, friends and neighbours, and we care about the same things as everyone else. Our focus is on keeping families safe – and building on the things that are working. Reducing crime means having smart, well-trained Officers and Cadets who have the tools they need.
