Policing Along Side Native Americans
As stated in your text there are about 566 federally recognized tribal governments within the United States. They are viewed by the United States government as “domestic dependent nations” and retain inherent powers of self government. Along with reading your text go to www.bia.gov/FAQs/index.htm and learn more about Native American tribes. For this assignment assume that you are a new chief of police or sheriff in an area adjacent to a large tribal area. In a 5 to 7 page APA formatted paper described the challenges you would face in policing along side Native Americans. Be specific about the issues faced in law enforcement by Native Americans and how those issues extend outside of their recognized boundaries and vice versa. Look back over each week of the course and draw from the lessons learned about multicultural policing and apply as many principles and strategies as you can to this scenario.
