Tribal Community Policing


Tribal Community Policing Project

IACP partnered with the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing to research the most promising community policing practices in Indian Country. This project explores what community policing looks like in Indian Country: what makes it unique from community policing in state and local agencies; what strategies are most effective; and how tribes can implement a successful community policing plan in their departments.
