Promising practices for improving safety in Indian country


In 2001, the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance and other agencies of the Office of Justice Programs, and along with tribal nations from the United States convened a National Policy Summit to explore ways to Improve Safety in Indian Country. The summit suggested 52 recommendations for improving safety in Indian country in the following six topical areas. This report records the legislative, programmatic, law enforcement and courts promising practices that are making life safer for Indian people in the United States. Contact information for the leaders who have developed or who manage these efforts are included in the hope that these programs can be shared and implemented in many other locations around the country
