The reservations have  seen more than their  share  of troubles.   Not to mention their seems to be an abnormal number of Native Americans who are incarcerated.  This is wise move by the Attorney General.  It will help bring tribal law enforcement up to speed,  at the same time they can help other law enforcement more aware of some the issues that  Native Americans face.    It is one step closer to tribal law enforcement working in concert with state police.

    Marty is a great AG! I would vote for him for Governor!

    If they create this position they better listen to that person and not just ignore them.

    This is exactly the kind of state governance I’ve been hoping for.

    I hope Dennis keeps the rez involed also.
