About Lakeshore Regional Police Service

Home // About LRPS
  • The Lakeshore Regional Police Service was established in 2008 through the collaborative efforts of the Lesser Slave Lake Indian Regional Council, the newly formed Lakeshore Regional Police Commission, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Alberta Justice and Solicitor General, and Federal Aboriginal Policing Directorate.

  • The Lakeshore Regional Police Service is responsible for all policing services on the five First Nations that make up the Lesser Slave Lake Indian Regional Council Territory, which runs along Lesser Slave Lake. Included in the First Nations communities of the Lesser Slave Lake Indian Regional Council Territory and within the jurisdiction of Lakeshore Regional Police Service are the Sawridge First Nation on the Eastern boundary, Swan River First Nation, Driftpile Cree Nation, Sucker Creek First Nation and Kapaweno First Nation on the Western end.

  • The Lakeshore Regional Police Service works closely with these First Nations communities to prevent and solve crime, and police officers work closely with First Nation community members to promote safety and protect their communities. Lakeshore Regional Police Service police officers focus on the priorities in their communities and partner with First Nations community groups to create sustainable change.

  • The Lakeshore Regional Police Service has full police officer authority as granted under the authority of the Alberta Police Act and consists of a Chief of Police, Inspector, two Sergeants, eight Constables and two clerical staff. The Lakeshore Regional Police Service currently operates out of the new Lakeshore Regional Police Service Building located off Hwy#2 on the Driftpile Cree Nation. The Lakeshore Regional Police Service is equipped with eight police motor vehicles, three all terrain vehicles (two quads and one side by side) and two snowmobiles.

  • The Lakeshore Regional Police Service currently has a 3 year agreement with the Alberta Solicitor General to fund one enhanced Lakeshore Regional Police Service position to be a part of the High Prairie RCMP's integrated drug enforcement unit. This positions mandate is to target organized crime groups and persons both on and off our First Nations. 

  • The Lakeshore Regional Police Service strives to ensure its image and community profile remain second to none through community engagement and partnerships, and by ensuring police officers and clerical support staff are extensively trained, committed, loyal and enthusiastic, and represent the "best of the best".
