Purpose: The Whispering Pines/Clinton Indian Band has entered into a contribution agreement with the Department of Justice Canada to manage the Secwepemc Community Justice Program (SCJP), which serves the Whispering Pines/Clinton Indian Band, the Kamloops Indian Band, and the Skeetchestn Indian Band. The main objectives of the program are to develop more satisfactory resolutions of criminal matters involving Aboriginal offenders and victims than are currently provided by the criminal justice system and to provide the necessary training to anyone working with victims or offenders to ensure that the needs and rights of these individuals are met. The program provides opportunities for the healing of individuals and their families, and may reduce the incidence of crime and violence in the communities. The program serves adults and youth who are of Aboriginal ancestry.
