Eeyou Eenou Police Force

Proud to serve Eeyou Istchee 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Eeyou Eenou Police Force (EEPF) is a regional police service organized under the administration of the Cree Nation Government since April 1, 2011. The EEPF is dedicated to delivering police services in partnership with our communities to keep Eeyou Istchee residents safe.

Regional police services in Eeyou Istchee are provided by the department of the EEPF through 9 local detachments.


Our mission is to maintain peace, order and public security, to prevent and repress crime and offences under the law and Cree communities by-laws throughout Eeyou Istchee. In pursuing our mission, the EEPF and its members ensure the safety of persons and property, safeguard rights and freedoms, as well as respect and remain attentive to the needs of victims. We partner strategically with key stakeholders to uphold the highest level of public security and social wellness for our people throughout the territory.


Proud of our origins, we are committed to providing professional policing services throughout Eeyou Istchee in partnership with the communities we serve. Our staff works from 11 different locations, including the Court Liaison office located in Amos. We also collaborate with the Cree Nation Government’s Human Resources and Apatisiiwin Skills Development departments to strengthen our recruitment efforts.

Core Values

By recognizing the value of each EEPF employee, we create and maintain an environment of individual safety, well-being, and development.

The following values shape our work:

  • Professionalism
  • Integrity
  • Respect
  • Accountability


Joining the Eeyou Eenou Police Force is a great way to be involved in the well-being of your community and Eeyou Istchee. Cree communities have their own needs in law enforcement. We believe in community policing: more support and less arrests. Using our language and traditional ways of communication makes a difference for everyone involved. That’s why we are asking you to be part of the solution. Get involved and help us make our communities healthier and safer.

We create awareness on crime prevention and many other topics. We go to schools and local assemblies to inform community members about issues such as vandalism, bullying, and Crime Stoppers (Échec au Crime). We have road blocks to remind drivers and their passengers about the Highway Safety Code. We take part in events that inform about topics such as Elder Abuse, Suicide Awareness and Prevention, and Conjugal Violence.

There is an exciting new format for police training starting in 2022. If you are a Cree beneficiary of the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement, you can apply to be in the next group of recruits. The program is made up of three months of classroom study towards an Attestation of College Studies (ACS) in Police Technology at Cegep de l’Abitibi-Temiscamingue in Rouyn-Noranda, thirteen weeks of Special Constable training at the École Nationale de Police du Québec (ENPQ) in Nicolet, then a return to the Cree communities. You’ll spend up to a year training on-the-job and gaining valuable experience alongside Eeyou Eenou Police Force Patrol Officers. The program is completed with three weeks at ENPQ where you become a full-fledged Officer.

In order to join the next cohort, you need to supply the following documents: high school transcripts, Secondary 5 Diploma, motivation letter and resume, Cegep de l’Abitibi-Temiscamingue application forms, and EEPF cohort application form. We’ll also need photocopies of your Certificate of Indian Status, Quebec Health Card, Driver’s License, and Birth Certificate. A background check will be completed to ensure your eligibility into the police training program. After attending the Selection Camp, you will undergo a physical health exam. We highly encourage you to follow a healthy, active lifestyle in order to keep up with the training and on-the-job physical demands.
