Police officers respond to a situation involving a mother in a suicidal crisis, take her for mental health treatment and arrange for her children’s care. Officers coping with trauma and tragedies on the job draw on their culture and traditions for strength. Dee shows us the Tʼtʼikt Si7xten (“SHIH-stn”), a pit house used by the Stl’atl’imx people, where elders today talk around the fire. Dwayne felt gratified when he was able to rescue a confused old man. Police officers use their training and experience when they head out to a crime in progress or follow up on an incident from the past.

TRIBAL POLICE FILES documents First Nations police services and their unique approach to protecting their communities while working for a brighter future. Dealing with the daily challenges of life on-duty and rebuilding their communities, officers share the most dangerous moments they have faced in the line of duty, while stressing the importance of cultural practices in staying strong for their families.
