Treaty Three Police Service strives to deliver an accountable, professional and culturally sensitive service to the Treaty #3 Nation. To be accountable, the Police Service created a complaint resolution process to explore reasons for any real or perceived complaints, identify all of the causes, attempt to make the situation right and prevent a recurrence.
All complaints of service delivery and / or conduct of its members and employees are taken seriously by the Treaty Three Police Service and investigated to the extent that resources and circumstances permit. In order to meet these demands, an independent Professional Standards Office was created to effectively investigate public and internal complaints. The types of complaints to be investigated by Professional Standards include employee conduct, and complaints of service delivery.
The Professional Standards Office operates independently from the Police Service and reports directly to Treaty Three Police Service Chief of Police. All investigative reports and evidence are reviewed by the Chief of Police, who determines the final verdict, responds to the complainant and levies any sanctions where appropriate. All decisions may be appealed to the Police Services Board for review. This process allows for independent, impartial and transparent investigations of the Police Service’s operations and conduct of its General Law Enforcement members and Civilian employees.
