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


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.
