Supporting Windsor Police

Helping Police Prevent Unlawful Activities

Ministry of the Attorney General

Windsor Police Service now has new technology to better support victims and protect families in the community.

The Civil Remedies Grant program enables money to be taken out of the hands of wrongdoers, and is used to assist victims and to help police prevent unlawful activities. Police use these grants to help keep Ontario families and communities safe.

With funds from the Civil Remedies Grant program, Windsor Police Service Organized Crime Unit now has new video cameras, computers, software and tracking devices to help:

  • conduct surveillance
  • collect intelligence information
  • enhance covert operations
  • keep officers safe during organized crime investigations.

Quick Facts

  • A grant for $61,334 has been awarded to the Windsor Police Service.
  • Ontario's CRIA office is recognized nationally and internationally for its precedent-setting work.
  • Since November 2003, $15.8 million has been forfeited to the Crown under provincial civil forfeiture law.
