The Police Insider is an independent news source designed to provide readers with an “inside” look at law enforcement, crime & justice issues and breaking news stories in the violent crime and murder capital of Canada.
Managing Editor, James G Jewell, comes to The Police Insider with over twenty-six (26) years experience in law enforcement (1987 – 2013) that includes working over eighteen (18) years as a plainclothes Detective. Investigative assignments included terms in Undercover Narcotics, Break & Enter Squad, Robbery Squad, Organized Crime Unit, Major Crimes Unit and the Homicide Unit, where he worked on over two-hundred (200) murder cases.
In 2011, Jewell completed his second year as WPS Homicide Unit Supervisor when he came into conflict with upper Police Management after challenging a transfer policy that would force two (2) dedicated investigators out of the Unit.
That challenge resulted in a blindside transfer to a desk job in a Uniform Patrol Division. Never one to shy away from a fight, Jewell filed a grievance against the WPS alleging the transfer was punitive in purpose or effect. He subsequently won a public Labour Arbitration Hearing that was extremely critical of high ranking members of the Police Service.
After “officially” retiring from the Police Service in 2013, Jewell plunged into the world of journalism and became an avid blogger (The Power of Words – 2012) and a frequent contributor to the Winnipeg Free Press. The Police Insider has been a frequent guest on local radio, news and television programs.
