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

History[edit]

The Canadian federal government created First Nations police forces to provide greater sensitivity to the needs and issues of policing in First Nations communities. Past conflicts, including some resulting in deaths of aboriginal citizens, 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 input from other police forces in dealing with aboriginal policing issues.
