Manitoba Government investing $50,000 for crime prevention in Swan River


The Manitoba government is investing $50,000 derived from the proceeds of crime, to support community safety and crime prevention programs in Swan River

Justice minister Kelvin Goertzen said in a release that “RCMP have indicated that surveillance cameras would be beneficial in improving safety in Swan River and the government is pleased to provide this funding to the town toward the purchase of surveillance camera equipment.”

The new surveillance equipment will assist RCMP to identify suspects, act as a deterrent, and preserve evidence to assist prosecutions.

Since its inception in 2009, the Criminal Property Forfeiture Fund has distributed more than $24.5 million back to communities throughout the province.
