Kahnawake Public Safety Commission to replace former Safety Committee


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawą:ke would like to inform the community that Chief and Council passed a Mohawk Council Executive Decision (MCED) approving the replacement of the Public Safety Committee with the ‘Kahnawą:ke Public Safety Commission’ (KPSC) at this week’s duly convened Council meeting on Monday, 26 Enniskó:wa/March.
The revised MCED for the Kahnawą:ke Public Safety Commission replaces the former ‘Kahnawą:ke Safety Committee’ as outlined in MCR #59/1993-1994 and #137/1987-1988, which has been rescinded.
The revised Kahnawą:ke Public Safety Commission is re-aligned to now include the Kahnawake Peacekeepers, Public Safety, Emergency Management, Kahnawake Fire Brigade, Public Works and Corrections (Parole Supervision and reintegration services) which will act under the authority of the Kahnawą:ke Public Safety Commission Mandate.

The new composition and Mandate brings together the visioning and responsibility of key stakeholders to collaboratively address Public Safety with a focus on education and prevention, as well as collaborating on protocols and procedures to mitigate and respond to Community Public Safety and current regulations.
“The revised Mandate allows for the greater participation and collaboration of services that Public Safety provides to the community,” said Ron Skye, Commissioner of Public Safety. “In today’s environment, Public Safety needs to more linear and inclusive in addressing Public Safety rather than singularly focusing the responsibility on a specific unit or organizational response to a Public Safety concern.”
