I totally agree. Our CSOs are not an enforcement body. That is the difference between our community safety officer program and the RCMP.
When we did a survey among our citizens, we asked them the question, “Do you want the CSOs to have enforcement powers?” They said loud and clear that they didn't.
Our officers are all indigenous. We have one woman, and a couple of them are now from our community. That is the difference. They are from our community, and our community knows and trusts these individuals. They have roots and ties to these people. Our people know that they can go to them and trust them. They work alongside the RCMP officers, and they act as a liaison between the officers and the communities they serve.
