STPS hires new recruit officer
May 21, 2021. The STPS has hired a new recruit, Constable Keinan Brown. He was sworn in as a Designated Police Constable at the STPS Lillooet Office. He swore both his Oath of Allegiance and Office as well as the Designated Constable Oath to the St’at’imc People. Constable Brown will begin his recruit training at the Police Academy at the Justice Institute of BC (JIBC) this month and is set to graduate in March 2022.
Here’s what Constable Brown has to say: “I am originally from Ontario. I studied Police Foundations while I attended Durham College’s School of Justice and Emergency Services (JES) in Oshawa, Ontario. Plus, I studied Criminology and Justice at Ontario Tech University in Oshawa, Ontario. I moved to British Columbia in pursuit of my dream to become a Police Officer. I first worked as a Correctional Officer for the Province of BC for 2.5 years before I was hired as a Constable with the Stl'atl'imx Tribal Police Service. I am someone who loves hockey and pretty much all sports. If I am not playing sports I am either working out or watching movies.”

Mount Currie office project at final stage
March 31, 2021. The STPS is looking forward to moving into a new office in the very near future. The Lil'wat Nation building project has reached its final stage. It will soon be time to bid farewell to the blue building that housed the STPS detachment for many years. The new facility will meet the current demands of the STPS: increased staff, technological advancements and expanding operations. We are pleased to provide a community-based policing service that reflects the needs, culture, customs and rights of the St'at'imc people.
"Our force may be small, but we serve each day with honour and respect."
