Everyone wants Indigenous policing – but how do we get there?


It’s been more than a month since Myles Sanderson took the lives of 11 people on James Smith Cree Nation in Saskatchewan.

Since then, the community has talked about healing – and what to do next.

While leaders have commended the RCMP for its investigation of the murders, questions have also been raised about whether things would have been different if James Smith had its own police force.

The federal government is offering money to support programs across the country and leaders are calling for Indigenous police forces to be considered an essential service.

But others say it’s not just about paying to have a police force.

What comes next for James Smith Cree Nation, and other nations across the country are examined on InFocus.
