This memorandum, dated July 13, 2022, is regarding "Promoting Public Safety in Indian Country." From the Memorandum: "It is a priority of the Department of Justice to address the disproportionately high rates of violence experienced by American Indians and Alaska Natives (Al/AN), and relatedly, the high rates of indigenous persons reported missing. In November 2021 , the Department established a Steering Committee dedicated to marshalling the Department's resources and personnel to address these issues. The Steering Committee undertook a review--in close consultation with Tribal leaders and stakeholders--of the Department's relevant guidance, policies, and practices to improve the law enforcement response in Indian country."
