Carrie has been a First Nations Constable for 5 years, first with the Wikwemikong Tribal Police Service and currently with the U.C.C.M. Anishnaabe Police Service.
Carrie states “I enjoy and prefer working for a First Nations Service as they offer very unique opportunities when it comes to police in each of the areas. Historically, First Nations did not have a good relationship with police, but I look to change that in my current role. I truly believe that everyone is equal and that we are all just trying to figure it out. Often, police deal with people on one of the worst days of their life, and they are facing equally serious consequences. It is important that during their lowest point that they are treated with respect and dignity.”
Carries commitment to building relationships within each community and on an individual basis embodies the services overall goal. Carrie says “It is equally important that the public build positive and trusting relationships to heal and better the community.” Carries approach to policing and community safety is by continuing to focus on proactive community policing objectives ~ while also being respectful and kind during reactive policing calls for service.
Carrie, her husband and three children live on a working farm.
Carrie joined the UCCM Team in April 2019.
