Police leaders hit the ice road to meet with First Nations leaders recently. 

On Feb. 27, James Bay OPP detachment command team members and the provincial liaison team piled into the orange truth and reconciliation vehicle for a trip on the ice road to meet with leaders in Fort Albany and Kashechewan.

“Unfortunately, an incoming storm prevented the OPP team from their planned visits with Attawapiskat and Moose Factory, but they hope to connect in the near future,” reads an OPP news release. 

The stops also included talking to Nishnawbe-Aski Police Service (NAPS) members.

“The OPP visit coincided with members of Peel Regional Police landing in Fort Albany for their secondment with NAPS, where Peel officers are assigned to Kashechewan, Fort Albany, and Attawapiskat to work in sharing operational resources,” said police in the statement.

“The ice road expedition provided a unique opportunity for the OPP to bridge gaps and establish open lines of communication with Fort Albany and Kashechewan, as officers engaged in discussions about community safety, mutual cooperation, and the challenges faced by the communities.”
