About Us

Criminal Intelligence Service Manitoba (CISM) is one of ten Provincial Bureaux operating within the Criminal Intelligence Service Canada (CISC) umbrella.

CISM is a strategically focused organization which ensures the timely production and exchange of criminal information and intelligence among our partner member agencies. The mandate at CISM is to be the “Provincial Centre of Excellence” in support of law enforcement efforts to detect, reduce, disrupt and prevent organized and serious crime affecting Manitoba and Canada. This mandate is achieved through the promotion of inter-agency cooperation within the Manitoba law enforcement community.

Staffed with employees who are seconded from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Winnipeg Police Service, Brandon Police Service, Manitoba Justice-Corrections, and Canada Border Services Agency, CISM provides relevant analytical products that assist more than 34 partner agencies.
