RCMP Indigenous Policing Services in BC: Empowering Safer and Healthier Communities

“RCMP Indigenous Policing Services in BC: Empowering Safer and Healthier Communities”

The BC RCMP Indigenous Policing Services is dedicated to creating safer and healthier Indigenous communities in British Columbia. Our goal is to actively work with over 200 Indigenous communities by implementing programs and initiatives that contribute to this objective.

Programs and Services:
We have several programs in place to attract, recruit, train, and expose Indigenous individuals in British Columbia to the world of policing. These initiatives include:

1. Community and Public Safety Professional Certificate or Diploma (CAPS):
BC RCMP members serve as instructors in the CAPS program offered through the Nicola Valley Institute of Technology in Merritt. CAPS equips students with the necessary skills for a career in the public safety sector. Graduates can use their certificate to pursue job opportunities within public safety agencies.

For more information about CAPS, please contact the Nicola Valley Institute of Technology (NVIT):
Toll-Free: 1-877-682-3300

2. Indigenous Gang Unit in BC:
Our BC RCMP Indigenous Gang Awareness Coordinator (IGAC) collaborates with local First Nations Policing (FNP) members, communities, and service agencies to address Indigenous gang-related issues. The coordinator offers presentations to educate both the community and law enforcement about these concerns, assesses available resources, and develops strategies for gang prevention and education.

If you have information about Indigenous gang activity, please:
– Contact CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or

– Leave a tip online at bccrimestoppers.com. Your identity will remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.

For any Indigenous gang-related matters, you can reach out to the BC RCMP Indigenous Gang Awareness Coordinator at 778-290-2401.

3. Division Liaison Team:
The RCMP in British Columbia has established the Division Liaison Team (DLT), responsible for building relationships with various groups, associations, and communities. The DLT aims to create a safe environment for individuals exercising their charter rights by working closely with event organizers and interest groups.

4. Recruiting:
Indigenous recruiters from the RCMP travel across BC to engage with aspiring police officers and inform them about the opportunities available within the force. through seminars, talks, and career fairs, potential recruits can directly learn about how they can make a difference as members of the RCMP.

To learn more about employment opportunities with the RCMP, please contact the Indigenous Recruiting Coordinator at 778-290-2278.

We are committed to empowering Indigenous communities and working towards a safer and healthier future. Join us in creating a positive impact through the RCMP Indigenous Policing Services.
