Bonnie Emerson, taken in the media room at Winnipeg Police Service headquarters, for story on being selected one of 22 people from around the world to go to Thailand to participate in a three-month training course in conflict resolution. She will take part in intense training at Chulalongkorn University, including active hands-on training in a conflict zone and in a post-conflict zone. She will be using her time there to focus on WPS/Indigenous relations and when she returns will be sharing and implementing new ideas and strategies within the WPS in the coming year to strengthen their relationship with the Indigenous community. The course is sponsored by Rotary International. Bonnie Emerson is Metis and is a 25 year veteran to WPS. Ashley Prest story. Jan 9h, 2019

Good Morning!  Here is the link to the Winnipeg Free Press Article for those of you that may be interested.  https://www.winnipegfreepress.com/local/winnipeg-officer-to-gain-international-education-504130892.html

Thank you to reporter Ashley Prest and photographer Ruth Bonneville, for taking the time to meet me and sharing my story in the Winnipeg Free Press.   It through partnerships that good work gets shared.  Often it is the negative stories that get circulated and truly this is just one example of the work that many in the Winnipeg Police Service (WPS) do every day.  I am not the exception, but rather the rule of the many many people within the WPS whom I work with every day. 

I promise to do more to highlight this good work and work with our Public Information Office (Thank you – Cst Skrabek who assisted me in arranging this meeting), going forward to give you all a much better sense of the amazing and caring work that occurs within Winnipeg!!!!!!

    I was so thrilled to see this article! We met a few years ago during a Thunderwing assessment at my clinic and I was so impressed with your demeanour, your compassion, your honesty and your frankness. I hope you have a wonderful experience with Rotary. Can’t wait to see what you bring back to Winnipeg!!!

    • Thank you Jennifer,
      Rotary, the staff at Chulalongkorn University are amazing leaders in this field!
      Speaking of Thunderwing I have shared that model here in Bangkok with my Peace Fellows. I believe we have developed some pretty amazing community driven initiatives right in Winnipeg Canada. I am always looking at what we do further!! bonnie
