"The Tribal Law and Order Act (TLOA), enacted July 29, 2010, requires the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) to (1) establish and implement a tribal data collection system and (2) support tribal participation in national records and information systems (P.L. 111- 211, 124 Stat. 2258, § 251(b)). The act further requires that the director of BJS consult with Indian tribes to establish and implement this data collection system. The BJS director is required to report to Congress within one year of enactment, and annually thereafter, the data collected and analyzed in accordance with the act. This report describes activities in support of BJS's tribal crime data collection system and summarizes findings and program enhancements between 2008 and 2012. This analysis includes data from the 2010 U.S. Census, the Census of State and Local Law Enforcement Agencies (CSLLEA), the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program, the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program, and the Federal Justice Statistics Program (FJSP)."
