Welcome to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police “E” Division
Aboriginal Policing Services website.
British Columbia is home to over 200 aboriginal governments
and bands. Though many share similar cultural, language and
historical heritages, each community is unique – with
its own diverse policing needs. “E” Division
Aboriginal Policing Services (APS) is dedicated to working
with aboriginal communities throughout British Columbia to
deliver policing services to meet their needs.
of these services are delivered by members who are part
of the approximately 72 First Nations or Aboriginal Policing
Positions posted at one of 48 community-based detachments,
satellite offices or RCMP headquarters. These positions provide
dedicated policing services to various aboriginal communities
throughout the province. Through these offices, a number
of community-based initiatives, partnerships and crime
prevention programs are coordinated. The detachment
profiles on this
website showcase the community initiatives being undertaken
at RCMP detachments throughout the province, and in partnerships
with the communities they serve. These profiles are designed
to facilitate information sharing between “E” Division
RCMP detachments, the community and others interested in
learning more about community policing.
Each detachment service
area is unique – and so are
community policing initiatives underway in each community.
The profiles provide but a snapshot of the total services
provided by the RCMP in communities across British Columbia.
