Sgt. Dawn Blake
After spending 12 years with the RCMP, Dawn joined the Tsuut’ina Nation Police Service in 2010.
Dawn-Lyn was promoted to Cpl. in 2016 and has been actively involved and instrumental in the creation and development of the Community Response Unit (CRU) of the Tsuut’ina Nation Police Service.
While in her position the unit evolved to three officers and one civilian who represented the Crime Prevention Coordinator position. Dawn-Lyn has been the driving force behind the TNPS’ community programs over the past eight years, in addition to her successful work as the inaugural Community Youth and Family Liaison Officer, a position created to build relationships with the youth in the community.
In 2017, Dawn-Lyn was promoted to Sgt. Where she is currently the NCO i/c of Operations. As part of her duties, Dawn provides oversight to all High Risk file investigations within the Service. Dawn-Lyn has investigated the majority of Major Crimes Investigations on the Tsuut’ina Nation since her arrival and is the primary interviewer for our major crimes investigations.
In 2017, Dawn-Lyn was the recipient of “Officer of the Year Award” from the First Nations Chiefs of Police Association and was presented her award in April 2017, in Niagara Falls, Ontario, and in true fashion, was an excellent ambassador of our Service.
