COPS Office Report to Congress as Required by Tribal Law and Order Act of 2010   [open pdf - 4MB]

"Since the creation of the Community Oriented Policing (COPS) Office under the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, the COPS Office has awarded over 2,000 grants for more than $400 million to help Native American communities hire more than 1,700 new or redeployed law enforcement officers, and has aided tribal jurisdictions in obtaining necessary training, equipment, vehicles, and technology. Through a myriad of grant programs, training, and technical assistance, the COPS Office recognizes and supports the unique law enforcement and other needs specific to tribal communities as a result of their limited resources and high rates of crime and violence. Through our Tribal Resources Grant Program (TRGP) and Tribal Methamphetamine Program (Tribal Meth), and historical programs and funding initiatives such as the Tribal Hiring Renewal Grant Program (THRGP),Tribal Mental Health and Community Safety Initiative (TMHCSI), and the Tribal Court Pilot Program (TCPP), the COPS Office has proactively addressed the needs of law enforcement in Native American communities."
