St. Thomas Police Service (STPS) Community Satisfaction Survey

Land acknowledgement: We acknowledge that the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of the Attawandaron, Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, and Lunaapeewak peoples who have longstanding relationships to the land, water, and region of southwestern Ontario. The local First Nation communities of this area include Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, Oneida Nation of the Thames and Munsee-Delaware Nation. Additionally is a growing urban Indigenous population who make the City of St. Thomas their home. We respect that Indigenous Nations are the original caretakers of this land. We acknowledge historical and ongoing injustices that Indigenous Peoples endured in Canada. We accept responsibility to contribute toward revealing and correcting miseducation as well as renewing respectful relationships with Indigenous communities. We value the significant historical and contemporary contributions of local and regional First Nations of Turtle Island.
