Police Operation in Kanesatake: First Nations Police Satisfied with the outcome

MASHTEUIATSH, QC, June 14, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - First Nations Police are satisfied with the outcome of the operation conducted this morning in Kanesatake by the Aboriginal Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit in a united effort for the wellness of our communities.

In conjunction with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Sûreté du Québec, First Nations Police officers took part in this operation targeting a criminal organization specialized in drug production and trafficking. Together, the police partners contributed to disrupting this criminal organization.

The police operation conducted today should serve not only as a signal for the other First Nations communities, but most of all as a warning for criminal groups that take advantage of the status of Aboriginal territories. Our communities can be vulnerable to organized criminal activity and to the violence and intimidation that often comes along with it.

Citizens must be made aware of the social and economic harm caused by organized crime. Citizens must mobilize against criminal groups to avoid falling prey to them or unwillingly becoming involved in their activities.

Our First Nations peoples have taken up numerous challenges in the past to preserve the integrity of their culture, language and identity. We have always managed to overcome adversity and to survive as a nation. Organized crime and its destructive influence shall no longer impact the future of our communities.

We will remain faithful to our beliefs and pursue our efforts to combat organized crime.
