Attorney General Marty J. Jackley announces that the Attorney General intends to seek legislative approval to create a tribal member position for the Law Enforcement Officers Standards and Training Commission (LEOSTC). November 17th, 2010, the LEOSTC endorsed the decision to increase the Commission with a tribal member seat.
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.
