Community Service Section

Community Service Officer:

The Six Nations Police have one Community Service Officer (CSO) and their primary goal is to build positive relationships with the community as a whole.

The CSO has many duties from handling media relations to co-chairing the Six Nations High Risk Committee to being the School Resource Officer to the schools in the territory.

The CSO is asked to do many presentations which range from Bullying / CyberBullying, Online Cyber Safety & Traffic Safety to students. Human Trafficking & Elder abuse to the infestation of the drug culture and organized crime infiltration into the territory to the community and agencies.

The purpose is to provide as much information as possible to the community for their SAFETY and awareness.

How the Criminal Justice works

  • “proof beyond a reasonable doubt”
  • How an investigation works – “it’s not what you know, it’s what you can prove in court”
  • Police are always “behind the 8 ball” when they are called because up until the crisis moment when they are called….evidence is happening and have to work backwards to source where it all came from.
  • If a call has been delayed for even a second, it can hinder an investigation immensely.
  • Proof
    • It comes from the “horses mouth” not hearsay or third hand information. (those are just starting blocks to continue efforts to obtain source information)
    • Police cannot force anyone to provide information if they don’t want to. It must be voluntary and without coercion – no intimidation from any authority figure.
    • It comes from the proper collection of evidence ie. Judicial Authorizations – search warrants for cell phone data, physical evidence…etc.
  • The 1st thing defence counsel for an accused attacks is procedure….how was that information obtained in Judicial Authorizations.
    • Where did the source information come from?
    • Did law enforcement violate their client’s rights?
    • Did they enter their client’s residence/ property lawfully?
    • Did they obtain their clients cell phone information lawfully?
    • Why did the press release reveal too much evidence?
  • Defence counsel do there best to create doubt in the Justice (bail), Judge or Jury’s (trial) mind
    • They challenge all the evidence collected in what’s called a ‘Voir Dire”. A trial within a trial to argue whether to admit or omit evidence.
