DOPS Mascot

As the CEO for Dakota Ojibway Tribal Council, I had the honor and privilege of facilitating a long term Strategic Planning process of the Dakota Ojibway Police Service in the summer of 2009.

It is the goal of the Dakota Ojibway Police Service to position itself as the police service of choice to First Nations seeking alternatives in policing.

The Dakota Ojibway Police Service has support for expansion within the Province of Manitoba from the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs and the Assembly of First Nations both at the Provincial and Federal level.


Dakota Ojibway Police Service has a tradition that is proud and wishes to service your community. We shall build on past experiences while delivering a dedicated policing service, which should accommodate the particular circumstances of your First Nation Community.

In building a strong organization, the Dakota Ojibway Police Service actively seeks and encourages person(s) from the First Nation communities with a desire to pursue a career in law enforcement.

Through the Federal First Nations Policing Policy, a Tripartite Agreement was signed between the Federal & Provincial Governments and the Council of Chiefs of the Dakota Ojibway Tribal Council, with the Federal Government contributing 52% and the Provincial Government contributing 48% of the funding. All Tripartite Agreements are for a five-year period.

Dakota Ojibway Tribal Council

The Dakota Ojibway Police Service has committed to continue improving. This commitment is supported by the Dakota Ojibway Tribal Council, governments of Manitoba and Canada through the negotiated agreements and continued funding.
