There will be heightened security at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, in the wake of a deadly bombing at a concert in Manchester, England.

True North's senior vice-president of venues and entertainment Kevin Donnelly says the elevated security measures will include a Winnipeg Police Service dog that can detect explosives.

"We are going to have a bomb-sniffing dog on site," he says. "We will be working with out colleagues, you know, whether it's the promoter, or Winnipeg police services, or RCMP, to try to extract what we can... in terms of what the proper responses need to be."

Constable Rob Carver says the Winnipeg police service's crowd management unit has a long-standing relationship with True North.

"Our members are at Jets games... working all the NHL games here, working large concerts... at Investors Group Field, we'll be out during the Canada Summer Games, all those things," says Carver.

In addition to his role as a public information officer, Carver says he's got about 22 years experience with the crowd management unit. He says that unit is specifically tasked with, among other things, large event security.

22 people were killed when a suicide bomber attacked an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena Monday night.

The heightened security measures at MTS Centre events are expected to continue into the foreseeable future. Constable Carver didn't go into detail for some of the other enhanced security that will be implemented.
