Indigenous Courts are criminal sentencing courts that use restorative justice and traditional ways to reach balance and healing. BC's First Nations/Indigenous Courts are often called Gladue courts. Indigenous Courts focus on balancing rehabilitation, accountability, and healing. With the advice of Elders and your community, the judge creates a healing plan to help restore your mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional health.
A Victim Services worker is available based out of the Alexis Creek RCMP detachment. Our Victim Services works directly with victims providing services to all victims of crime and trauma providing support and empowering victims to move from crisis to confidence. They provide emotional support to victims, witnesses, and their family members, provide information and practical assistance, and can provide court support when needed.
