The communities the Stl'atl'imx Tribal Police serve have high rates of sexual assaults and domestic abuse. Arresting someone fuelled by alcohol in a domestic violence call puts officers at risk. The officers work with the band council groups addressing these issues. A way towards a healthier future is by connecting with the land, ancient traditions, and shared stories. Cst. Len Isaac gains a new understanding of alcohol problems through a story one residential school survivor told him as they were driving to the RCMP detachment. 

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. Season 1 features the Stl'atl'imx Tribal Police serving 10 St'at'imc communities around Lillooet, BC.
