In the spirit of partnership with the Treaty #3 Nation, the Treaty Three Police Service will provide a continuous and effective police service to the membership. Police members will provide a professional, dedicated and responsive police service that is sensitive to the traditions and culture of the communities we serve.
To be recognized as an essential service governed by a traditional Anishinaabe system of policing and justice for the Treaty #3 Nation.
The Treaty Three Police Service is a self-administered Policing entity under the First Nations Policing Program in Canada and is responsible for full policing duties spanning 55,000 square miles of the Greater Treaty Three Region in Northwestern Ontario. This includes approximately 20,000 local residents in 23 First Nation Communities.
Over our proud 18 year history we have evolved from our inception in 2003 starting with only 23 Officers, into Canada’s mound largest First Nation Policing Organization with a sworn Member compliment of 86 Officers and 21 Civilian Staff Members (not including guards and Matrons). With such rapid growth, expansion and constant Organizational change, our Service has had to evolve and adapt in many ways to continue providing an exceptional level of Policing to the Communities we serve.
We are proud to police in communities that have strong history, culture and traditions. Our workforce is reflective of our Communities and we greatly value the strength that this diversity offers. Cultural and Community programs coupled with strong Community connections are an Important part of our organization.
The Treaty Three Police Service continues to evolve and remains focused on addressing what is most important to our Communities. To achieve growth, we have to remain continually connected with our past while working with the Leaders of our Communities, our Police Service Board, our Citizens and our Officers to address current issues with a forward thinking – strategic focus. Our achievements are measured through accountability, transparency, governance and communication with our Citizens, our funding partners and partner policing agencies.
