RE: Sheriffs or Peace Officers sitting on the reserve boundaries
WE NEED YOUR HELP
For some time now, the Provincial Sheriffs and sometimes Peace Officers have been sitting at the Ermineskin Reserve and Wetaskiwin County boundaries. They sit waiting to stop the majority of our Citizens without cause. Since the implementation of the Sheriffs Program in March 2009, Council has raised their concerns of jurisdiction and patrolling tactics but the concerns have fell onto the deaf ears of the Provincial Government.
The Ermineskin Chief and Council are now taking the position to document their profiling tactics.
If you see a Sheriff or Peace Officer parked on the County Line, please forward the following information to any member of your Council.
(1) Date and time; and (2) the car number and/or license plates. Photos of car number or license plate will be accepted but specific date and time must be included.
Chief and Council are NOT asking you to show any overt disrespect. Simply forward the information requested at your earliest convenience.
