Chapter four discusses the policing of Indigenous peoples. It outlines the importance of various royal commissions and inquiries in Australia and Canada. The chapter considers in particular the role of police discretion and its adverse use against Indigenous people with a focus on stop and searches, move-on powers, juvenile diversion, bail and pre-trial detention. It outlines the role of racial profiling and use of force, and details the issue of Indigenous deaths in custody, particularly in Australia and Canada. The chapter has a specific discussion on policing and responses to violence against Indigenous women. The chapter concludes with a discussion on Indigenous modes of policing including community police, US tribal police and local policing initiatives such as night patrols.
