Sask. tribal councils considering creating a northern tribal police force
Three Saskatchewan tribal councils are considering whether to create a northern tribal police force in the province.
The Prince Albert Grand Council, the Meadow Lake Tribal Council and the Saskatoon Tribal Council represent a majority of Indigenous communities in northern Saskatchewan.
Vice-Chief Joseph Tsannie said Prince Albert council senators and communities are asking the tribal council to get involved in law enforcement to provide a safe environment for youth.
He said all parties involved in the talks have expressed interest in finding out what tribal policing would look like.
