Tribal-State Law Enforcement Collaboration Webinar July 23

July 16, 2015

Collaborations between tribal communities and state and local law enforcement are changing attitudes, building trust, and forming mutual respect between policing agencies and community members. In 2013, the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe and the South Dakota Highway Patrol entered into a historic memorandum of understanding (MOU) that empowers state law enforcement officers to enforce tribal law on the reservation at the request of the Tribe. For the past two years, the Tribe has used this MOU to ensure public safety during the Tribe’s annual powwow. 

This webinar will highlight how this intergovernmental collaboration came about, the significance of this partnership for law enforcement and the community, and lessons learned. This is an interactive session with opportunities for participants to ask questions of the presenters.
