A film crew will be in Lillooet Dec 2015 to begin filming a new TV documentary series on the Stl’atl’imx Tribal Police.
The series, called “Tribal Police Files,” is the brainchild of producer Steve Sxwithul’txw, who served as an officer with the Tribal Police from 2000 to 2004.
“Filming starts Dec. 1 and goes for two weeks,” Sxwithul’txw told the News.
“This is not like the TV show ‘Cops.’ It’s not all blood, guts and gore,” he said. “We’re focusing on the community policing model and the interaction of police officers with the community.”
He said the Stl’atl’imx Tribal Police are “so much different” than any other police force in B.C. or across Canada.
“We want to show the things they do that make them unique,” said Sxwithul’txw.
He emphasized that this will not be a so-called “reality” TV show, but an in-depth documentary series. He added that it would probably include re-enactments of some incidents.
