2014 Blood Tribe Police Ball

2014 Blood Tribe Police Ball

The Annual Blood Tribe Police Ball is an event held every year that plays host to the people of the Blood Tribe Police Organization who make it happen.

This formal occasion gives people an opportunity to mingle, socialize and acknowledge all of those who play an important role in the organization’s success and operations.

In addition to the staff and families of the Blood Tribe Police, were Lethbridge Mayor Chris Spearman, former Lethbridge Mayor Bob Tarleck, LRPS Chief of Police Tom McKenzie and BTP’s very own Chief Lee Boyd.

This year’s 2014 Blood Tribe Police Ball was held at the Coast Hotel & Conference Centre in Lethbridge, Alberta. There was a formal dinner and silent auction throughout the evening with proceeds benefitting the Victim Services Unit.

Guests were encouraged to participate by bidding on auction items which included designer handbags, children’s toys, housewares, bath and body products and some fine wine.

Entertainment for the evening was provided by well-known local band The Chevelles who kept the room energetic and lively all night.

All of the 200 plus guests had nothing but great things to say about the evening and gave special thanks to all of the volunteers and Blood Tribe Police members who made the night happen.

We would like to give a final heartfelt Thank You to all of our sponsors for the evenings - without their support and commitment events like this wouldn’t be able to happen. We appreciate your support.

2014 Kainai Pow Wow

2014 Kainai Pow Wow

July 18 to July 20th, 2014 marked the 48th annual Kainai Pow Wow & Celebration held at Red Crow Park here in Standoff, Alberta. The Blood Tribe Police were honoured to not only attend, but to participate in the weekend's events.

The Pow Wow is a celebration of Blackfoot history, traditions and language through traditional songs, dances and events. It's a celebration that involves culture events including traditional dance and drumming competitions, an all Indian rodeo, hand game tournaments and various sporting events.

This year's event hosted over 1,000 dancers and competitors from all over Canada and the U.S. The weekend of celebration was kicked off with a pancake breakfast and entertainment from Armond Duck Chief Friday morning at the Blood Tribe Police station.

The BTP Team was then on-site at the Pow Wow for the rest of the weekend as a show of involvement and support for the local community. The Team was meeting and greeting members of the Blood Tribe as well as visiting with out-of-town guests.

The BTP tee pee was set up near the main entrance (an iconic welcome for event attendees and passerbys) alongside a booth staffed with team members handing out recruitment swag such as mini-fans, lanyards, mugs, patches and more.

In addition to attending the festivities as members of the community and guests, the BTP Team wanted to raise awareness about the recruitment division and interact with potential new police officer recruits as recruitment is a fundamental part of the Blood Tribe Police.
