Abstract
"A training film for B.C.'s municipal police recruits on the relationship between police and Aboriginal peoples. The intention of the film is to provide a first step training for recruits on: the history of Aboriginal peoples (First Nations, Inuit and Me´tis peoples), particularly in B.C. ; the role of police in the enforcement of laws of Canada that today are deemed to have been damaging to the Aboriginal peoples [...] ; the experience of the Aboriginal peoples through that lens, showing what police will see on the streets and in the communities today, both the powerfully positive and the profoundly negative ; the consequence of generations of children being taken from families and entered into the residential schools of this country [...] ; and finally, connecting issues of drug and alcohol abuse, family disintegration and loss of identity to the sexual, psychological, physical and other abuses common in the schools."

Abstract
Constable Al Arsenault, along with six other policemen, began video-documenting the lives of people on their beat to create a powerful educational tool to help prevent drug use among young people. This unique group of officers, who formed a non-profit group dubbed the Odd Squad, resulted in an unusual relationship between the police and addicts in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. The result is a documentary that gives addicts a voice to talk about who they are, and how they got to the streets. Through their participation, they hope to stop others joining their nightmare.
