Message from the Chief of Police


I want to take the opportunity to welcome you to the new Akwesasne Mohawk Police Service website.

The Akwesasne Mohawk Police Service is one of 9 self-administered First Nations police services in the province of Ontario. The other two-thirds of our Territory is within the province of Quebec. We have been a stand-alone police service since 1991.

My officers reach out to many community members and this has evolved into a rewarding partnership. Participation through many education and awareness programs is ongoing. We shall continue to take the time to be an empathetic and caring Police Service.

Even though we, as all Police Services continue to do more with less, we have proven to be imaginative and efficient with resources. We continue to be strategic and disciplined in the deployment of these resources.

I hope that the information you find in this website will provide you insight into the Police Service, and answer many of your questions. If you require further clarification, please take the time to email me at The Akwesasne Mohawk Police Service is striving to make our community safe for the next 7 generations.
