“Tribal Police Files” is back on the case.
Shooting of the new APTN documentary TV series resumed last week in Lillooet after a five-month hiatus.
Producer Steve Sxwithul’txw said the crew will be shooting here until June 9. Last week’s filming locations included the T’it’q’et daycare, where Cst. Len Isaac gave the youngsters a chance to sit in his squad car and try out the siren. Stl’atl’imx Tribal Police (STP) Sgt. Dale Austinson, linguist Linda Dan and Kathy Doss were among those interviewed. A film crew also took a trip to Seton Portage to film segments there.
“It’s not like we’re looking for crime,” Sxwithul’txw explained in an interview with the News. “It’s nice to have people out and about in the community where we can talk about things that are going on in the community and highlight them. It’s not all crime-related. It’s all about showcasing this beautiful area and the people who are here.”
The STP is the only tribal police force in British Columbia.
