Police in Fort Hope First Nation say there aren't enough officers to fight high crime. The Reserve says crimes such as arson are out of control so it has declared a state of emergency. Sergeant Jackie George says the community needs patrols 24 hours a day, but there just isn't enough funding. The reserve's chief says people are so afraid of arson, they sleep with a fire extinguisher.
