HistoryEdit

On March 30, 1992, a five-year Ontario First Nations Policing Agreement was signed by Grand Council of Treaty 3, Nishnawbe Aski Nation, Association of Iroquois & Allied Indians, Anishinabek Nation, Six Nations and the Provincial and Federal Government.

In 1994, Garden River, Curve Lake, Sagamok and Saugeen First Nations stepped away from the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) to form the Anishinabek Police Service. At this time it was also decided that Garden River would be home to Headquarters because geographically it is situated in the center of the province.
