Indigenous Elders Supporting PAPS
The Prince Albert Police Service continues to benefit from the knowledge and guidance of Indigenous Elders in our community. In May 2021, the police service announced Elder Liz Settee and Elder Leonard (Bunny) Ermine would join the police service to provide advice and support as our organization continues working toward reconciliation and understanding.
The Elders will act as spiritual guides for the police service and will lead members and staff in teachings and learning on Indigenous traditions and culture.
Both Elder Settee and Elder Ermine are well known for their work within the local community, including with local youth and the Prince Albert Grand Council.
“In policing, we must always strive to represent those we serve in the community with respect and honour. Understanding the history of our community is important to our success as an organization" - Police Chief Jonathan Bergen
