South Australia Police acknowledges and respects Aboriginal peoples as the state's first peoples and nations, and recognises them as traditional owners and occupants of land and waters in South Australia. Further, we acknowledge that the spiritual, social, cultural and economic practices of Aboriginal peoples come from their traditional lands and waters, that they maintain their cultural and heritage beliefs, languages and laws which are of ongoing importance, and that they have made and continue to make a unique and irreplaceable contribution to the state.
We acknowledge that Aboriginal peoples have endured past injustice and dispossession of their traditional lands and waters.
