Crime in Charleswood and Headingley
Published the in the Canstar Metro and Headliner November 2021
Charleswood and Headingley are two unique and beautiful communities. With our geographic locations right at the edge of the City, the constituency of Roblin really is a little bit city and a little bit country. Our constituency is half within the City of Winnipeg boundaries and half within the Rural Municipality of Headingley.
Like every community in Manitoba, Charleswood and Headingley have experienced crime. I have heard more and more from constituents about cars being riffled through or having items stolen from garages. These types of crime are considered property crimes and make up a significant portion of the crime that happens in our communities.

It is always important to report a crime, no matter how small it may seem to you. By reporting a crime, police are able to monitor trends in a community and plan accordingly. An interesting online resource provided by the City of Winnipeg Police Services is their crime-mapping tool. When you report a crime to the police, they are able track the crime and mark it in their system. This allows members of the public like you and I to look online at the activity going on in our neighbourhoods.

I want to say thank you to the hard working members of the Winnipeg City Police and the RCMP who help to keep our communities safe. They are a tremendous resource for community members who have questions and concerns about crime. Be sure to reach out and report property crime if you notice it.
