Webinar - Improving Tribal & State Community Relations: Joint Crow Creek Sioux Tribe and South Dakota Highway Patrol Memorandum of Understanding

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 highlights how this intergovernmental collaboration came about, the significance of this partnership for law enforcement and the community, and lessons learned. Presenters included Chairwoman Roxanne Sazue, Chairwoman of the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe, Chief Scott Shields, Police Chief of the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe, and Captain Alan Welsh, District Commander of the South Dakota Highway Patrol.
