Tribal Community Policing

Tribal Community Policing

On this page you will find concepts of 21st Century Policing that can be shared with tribal, state, and local public safety agencies, resources to enhance community partnerships, and practices in law enforcement, and research on tribal community-policing.


The IACP Tribal Community Policing project helps to improve safety, build community trust, and increase officer wellness in tribal policing jurisdictions. Having a strong community and police partnership is a critical component in addressing issues and challenges in tribal law enforcement.

Each of the resources displayed on this page, explores what community policing looks like in Indian Country: what makes it unique from community poling in state and local agencies; what strategies are most effective; and how tribes can implement a successful community policing plan in their departments.
