In episode 3 Constable Leonard Isaac responds to a 911 call for a possibly suicidal elderly male, who is in a domestic dispute. Constable Isaac travels the long drive to the location to talk to the complainant and the gentleman to diffuse the situation.
Constable Mitchell Thevarge shares the importance of smudging and spirituality in policing his community. Smudging is a First Nations traditional ceremony for purifying or cleansing of the mind, body and spirit. He shares with us his life’s mission of keeping and spreading the traditions of the Stl’atl’imx Nation.
We meet for the first time on Tribal Police Files, language expert Linda Redan. Linda has spent her life preserving the Stl’atl’imx language and works with the STP with any translation needs the police service may need.
Producer Steve Sxwithul’txw spent years as an officer with the STP. He shares his story of a situation where he has to draw his weapon and just how close things can change in an instant. A heavy confrontation with a suspect made him rethink his career and if he ever wanted to be in a situation where he would draw his weapon or fire his gun at another person.
After an intense scene with our producer, the show takes a sweet and innocent turn when we meet some of the children in the community. Teaching the kids and youth that the police services are in place to protect them and the community, Constable Isaac has his toughest audience yet!
