When Ernie Louttit joined the Saskatoon Police Service, he was only the third Native officer in a city with a significant Aboriginal population. In his much-lauded first book, Indian Ernie, Louttit shared stories of his years as a beat cop on the streets of Saskatoon. More Indian Ernie brings readers back to the street, where Louttit discusses post-traumatic stress, missing and murdered Aboriginal women, and the difficulties he has faced both as a Native man and a police officer. Demonstrating passion and support for his community as well as society’s less fortunate, he candidly offers insight into topics of substance abuse, prostitution, murder, Indigenous peoples, and police leadership with empathy and intellect.

Ernie Louttit was born in Northern Ontario and is a member of the Missanabie Cree First Nation. He began his career with the Canadian Armed Forces at 17 years of age, and in 1987 became only the third Native person hired by the Saskatoon Police Service. He spent his entire police career on the west side of Saskatoon, where he became known as Indian Ernie. His first book, Indian Ernie: Perspectives on Policing and Leadership, is based on those years on the streets.

\After retiring from the Saskatoon Police Service in October, 2013, Ernie’s first book led him to a new career in motivational and public speaking, as well as writing. While not as dangerous as being a police officer, he finds it very exciting and rewarding and is thankful for these opportunities. He continues to live in Saskatoon with his wife, Christine, and their 4 grown children.
