Mapping the Road- The Yankton Public Safety Commission and Professional Tribal Policing


The Yankton Sioux Tribe appointed 5 tribal members to sit on the Tribe’s Public Safety Commission in January of 2004. The Commission is intended to exercise oversight of 5 tribal police officers that Yankton is contracting from the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) as provided for under Public Law 93-638. The purpose and powers of the Commission have not yet been established, and this report is intended to assist in developing the Commission so that it plays a productive part in effective law enforcement for the Yankton community.
