Review the specific barriers that were overcome such as lack of state recognition, no available copies of MOU’s that were in prior existence, inability to use state academy for training; not honoring tribal courts, etc. Discuss how this enhanced multi-jurisdictional partnership has supported increased public safety for the Poarch Creek community.
