The Indigenous community is important to our local landscape and national identity. Calgary is located in Treaty 7, the traditional territory of the Blackfoot people. Cultural and traditional customs and practices remain strong and a part of everyday living. The communities in Calgary include First Nations, Metis and Inuit.
The Calgary Police Service is committed to building and maintaining partnerships with all communities in Calgary. The Calgary Police Service Indigenous liaison officer works to improve communication and community relationships with all Indigenous peoples in Calgary. The Indigenous liaison officer also works with several different organizations and programs to promote education and awareness towards current and long standing concerns within the community.
The Indigenous liaison officer also works with numerous agencies and programs to help promote awareness and healing within the community. This collaboration serves to better educate the Calgary Police Service of current issues as well as provide opportunities to assist the community in its own healing.
For more information on these programs, email the Indigenous liaison officer or contact by phone at 403-428-8158.
