Find out what is involved
Community members play a crucial role in COPP. The program would not exist without their support and dedication.
Any individuals or groups who identify a safety concern in their community can consider establishing a local COPP group and can apply to join the provincial program.
Manitoba COPP will provide groups with support and resources, including the necessary equipment and training to establish their COPP group.
Contact the Manitoba COPP or your local law enforcement office for direction and support. A Regional Representative may be available to come and talk to anyone interested in COPP.
After a community meeting and/or reading all the information, if the group decides to organize the program, they will need to receive approval from their local law enforcement agency to start the group
Volunteers must complete an application form and apply for a criminal record search coordinated with MB COPP through their local police agency.
(the fee may be waived for COPP applicants)
The cleared criminal record search must be supplied to the group coordinator by the applicant.
The coordinator advises the applicant if they have been accepted.
