Guidelines of First Nations Policing

Last updated on March 25, 2019

The federal government introduced the First Nations Policing Program to provide First Nation communities with policing services that are:

  • Professional
  • Effective
  • Culturally appropriate
  • Accountable to the communities they serve

The First Nations Policing Program offers resources to First Nations communities beyond what the provincial police force provides under the Provincial Police Service Agreement. Police officers providing enhanced services devote all their time to the policing needs of the First Nations communities.

Under the program, First Nations work with the RCMP to identify risks and develop policing services to enhance the safety of their communities.

The First Nations enhanced policing map shows the communities receiving these services.
