Tribal Policing Program Begun Here Grows
(2008-06-18)
(ksut) - HOST LEAD: A program begun by Colorado's U.S. Attorney to improve law enforcement in Indian country is expanding nationwide.
KSUT's Victor Locke reports.

VICTOR: U.S. Attorney Troy Eid of Colorado is spending today and tomorrow in Pierre, South Dakota, helping teach tribal, state and local law officers from that state and three others.
The goal is to strengthen public safety on the reservations of nine recognized tribes in South Dakota and surrounding states.
Trained officers can be deputized to enforce federal laws in Indian Country.
Eid launched the cross-deputation pilot program in partnership with the Southern Ute Indian Tribe in February of 2007, involving training of about 100 officers from the Southern Ute and Ute Mountain Ute tribes as well as Durango city, La Plata, Archuleta and Montezuma Counties, the state patrol, Division of Wildlife and others.
60 local and tribal officers have also been trained in ten other states as well.
The program has received national recognition.
From KSUT, I'm Victor Locke.
