Stl’atl’imx Tribal Police Service
The Stl’atl’imx Tribal Police Service evolved from a security program implemented by the Lillooet Band Council in 1986. Under this program, security personnel patrolled reserve areas, engaged in preventative work, and reported criminal activity to the RCMP as appropriate.
In 1988 the Lillooet Tribal Council expanded the concept by creating a peacekeeping program for the Lillooet Tribe. Eight peacekeepers were assigned to the Stl’atl’imx Nation communities of T’itq’et, Tsalalth, and Lil’wat.
