Edmonton’s police officers are getting involved in local National Aboriginal Day events in an ongoing effort to improve their relationship with urban aboriginals.

“It gives the opportunity for us to have involvement with the community in a positive way, so when there is a negative we are not totally seen as the negative,” said police Insp. Dan Jones.

On June 19, officers will join the Bent Arrow Traditional Healing Centre in their celebrations with a Tipi and face painting, while others will join in the A New Day celebration in Stony Plain.

On June 20, the Edmonton Native Healing Centre is expected to present a painting as a gift for Edmonton police as a symbol of ongoing reconciliation efforts and to honour the memory of missing and murdered aboriginal women.
