California AG Issues Information Bulletin on Tribal Protection Orders
The Tribal Law and Policy Institute applauds the California Attorney General for issuing this much-needed law enforcement guidance for the enforcement of tribal court protection orders. “Law enforcement officers must enforce valid tribal court protection orders…”. Thank you!
From the Bulletin, issued 11/29/2016:
"Both California and federal law require all law enforcement officers of this state to enforce tribal court protection orders, sometimes called “protective orders.” (Cal. Fam. Code, §§ 6400-6409 [Uniform Interstate Enforcement of Domestic Violence Protective Orders Act]; 18 U.S.C. § 2265 [Violence Against Women Act; federal law requiring “full faith and credit” be given to tribal court protection orders].) . . .
