Aboriginal Police in Canada are police forces responsible for public order on First Nations across Canada.

History[edit]

The national government created First Nations police forces for greater sensitivity to the First Nations. Past conflicts, with some deaths, have created tension between non-aboriginal police forces and aboriginal people. In 1992 the First Nations Chiefs of Police Association (FNCPA) was created to co-ordinate ideas from other forces in dealing with aboriginal policing.
