Policing on Reservations

Published by the Department of Justice, the authors of this document discuss their study on the effectiveness of policing within Tribal communities. Because the methodology of Tribal policing originates from policies used in underprivileged non-Native communities, the authors attempt to discern if these policies are actually effective in a community representing a different culture.
