Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Jg THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, (Motor 197! r Alberta's Indian reserves have own police By RUDY IIAUCENE1IER Staff Writer Most of Alberta's rural polite im: riion is provided hy HIP RCMP al a per-constable cost to the area taxpayer. However, Lhis province has another rural nolice agencv. a 20 man Indian force which upholds Uie law on 10 Alberta reserves. In southern Alberta six In- dian constables work at tho Blood reserve and two at the Peigan reserve. In order to provide reserve Indians with adequate police proteclion, the band councils, through careful screening, se- lect men who say they have ly voiced is that the program j Ian Mandin teaches James Parsons radio technique.

While in training the men, who live at police quarters, learn the Canadian Crim i n a 1 Code, federal statutes on In- dian Reserves, weaponry, pro- vincial statutes and various oth- er phases of crime detection. The course has been describ- ed as the "best two week course that can be taken" by many Indian constables in training. The only complaint frequent- LCC may appoint its vice-president The selection of an academic I requirements the college has wee president will highlight a set for the position. is too "crammed." Upon completion of the course the constables are presented with a spscial certificate bv the RCMP plus a first-aid certifi- cate. Tho barrack in which they receive their training is an area usually reserved for spec i a 1 courses for regular HCMP con- stables. An additional training sup- plement for Indian constables who have already graduated is planned for the winter months. The Indian constables are di- rectly responsible to band coun- cils who pay their salaries. The force's area of jurisdic- tion includes the federal crim- inal code and provincial sta- tutes on the reserve. The area of jurisdiction also includes: enforcement of band bylaws, juvenile guidance and 36 item public agenda of the Lethbridgo Community College board meeting this evening. Forty applications for the po- sition have teen considered since the competition opened. A special selection committee has reduced that number to three. The potential candidates have been interviewed during the past three weeks and if one is chosen, the announcement will be made during the meeting. There is a possibility that no candidate will meet the strict olher educative and preventive work, maintaining order at var- ious band functions including elections, policing of hand prop- erly, traffic control, and other functions normally carried out by an off-the-reserve village or town constable. Indian constables do not have the power of arrest off the reserve when provincial sta- tutes aro broken. However a resolution will soon be presented to the new provin- KRekintt to pivc the Indian police arresting pow- er anj where in the province. Since large scale introduc- lion cf Indian constables, many towns and villages near Indian reserves have aslircl ivlu-Mwr the force could service their communities during weekends. The wages, uniforms and cost of police equipment arc paid for by band councils, who also de- cide the number ol constables recmired. Two persons injured Two persons were injured and damage resulted when two cars collided at the intersection of 4th Ave. and llth SI. S. shortly before !i p.m. Tuesday. George Anthony Jagieski, 2019 7th Ave. A S., driver of cne of the cars, remained in SI. Michael's General Hospital this morning with head in- juries. The other driver.

The post is regarded as an important position at the col- lege, which has never before had an academic vice presi- dent. The position involves respon- sibility for curriculum develop- ment, program planning and liaison wilh the public. Other items in-the agenda in- clude the financial report for the year ending June 30, 1971 and a decision concerning fu- ture press coverage of board meetings.
