BA Collaboration and Communication at Law Enforcement

In 2017, the Winnipeg Police Service (WPS) identified four strategic goals as part of their business plan. These goals included: 1) Less Crime and Victimization; 2) Engaged Communities; 3) Effective and Efficient Service; and 4) Healthy Organization.
By launching the Court Notification System (CNS) Project through 2018-2019, the WPS anticipated achieving annual savings and successful outcomes in support of their goal for Effective and Efficient Service. In the end, the project outcomes exceeded WPS’ expectations by far, and the positive impact of the CNS .
The Project Sponsor and WPS Executives were highly invested in the success of the project, and consistently aligned in prioritizing its importance. They communicated regularly with each other and WPS members, whether formally or informally, and this was key in ensuring WPS members remained up to date, motivated and engaged throughout the project. The result of this approach was absolute magic. With strong communication, open dialogue and buy-in.
