Dwayne Zacharie named President of First Nations Chiefs of Police Association


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke wishes to congratulate Kahnawà:ke Chief Peacekeeper Dwayne Zacharie on being named to the position of President of the First Nations Chiefs of Police Association (‘the Association’).

The term is for one year.

Having served as Peacekeeper since 1998 and Chief Peacekeeper since June 2004, Chief Zacharie has been an active member of the Association for several years. At the time he was named President on October 26th, he was serving as Secretary/Treasurer.

“On behalf of Chief & Council, the Peacekeeper Services Board and the community, I’d like to congratulate Dwayne,” said Ietsénhaienhs Gina (Policing Portfolio) Deer, herself a former Peacekeeper. “He obviously has the confidence of his fellow police chiefs. We’re certain that he will do his best to help the Association attain its goals and fulfill its mandate. We’re also confident that he will further the Peacekeepers’ profile among Indigenous communities on a national basis.”

The Association is a national organization that strives to serve First Nations police and First Nations territories across Canada by facilitating the highest level of professionalism and accountability, in a manner that reflects the unique cultures, constitutional status, social circumstances, traditions and aspirations of Native people.
