Wood Buffalo RCMP appoints Indigenous Liaison Officer To Help Improve Relationship with Indigenous Communities

“I am excited about this new position and the potential it has to further strengthen relationships within our communities,” - Mark Hancock, Superintendent of the Wood Buffalo RCMP

 

 

Wood Buffalo RCMP have appointed an Indigenous Liaison Officer to regularly meet with First Nation and Métis communities in Northern Alberta.

Sgt. Martina L. Noskey, who has served with Alberta RCMP for 21 years, grew up in Treaty 8 territory and is a fluent Cree speaker.

In a recent news release, Mark Hancock, Superintendent of the Wood Buffalo RCMP,  says Noskey is “keenly aware of the current events with relation to residential schools as her father Felix Noskey recently passed and was a residential school survivor.”

Her work will focus on working with Indigenous leaders and community members directly on policing issues.
