The OPP's relationship with Aboriginal communities is a core business of the organization. The OPP through developed and ongoing relationships will continue providing policing assistance to Aboriginal communities and supporting First Nations Police Services.
The Aboriginal Policing Bureau provides service to Aboriginal communities and their policing partners through the following core functions:
- Administer Policing for 19 communities, who have not yet exercised a self-directed policing option pursuant to the Ontario First Nations Policing Agreement,
- Strategic Design and Delivery of Operational Training for First Nations Police Services,
- Lead Cultural, Historical and Legal Issues Training for Policing and Community Partners, and
- Support our Partners to Lead Sustainable Growth of their Police Services and their Communities.
More information about Aboriginal Policing is available in the What We Do section under Aboriginal Policing.
