Criminal Jurisdiction in Indian Country Seminar

Tuesday Jan 12, 2021 - 09:30am EST to Wednesday Jan 13, 2021 - 06:00pm EST
Event Description: 

The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), Office of Justice Services (OJS) issues Special Law Enforcement Commissions (SLECs) to tribal, federal, state, and local full-time certified law enforcement officers who will serve without compensation from the Federal government.  This process allows BIA to obtain active assistance in the enforcement of federal criminal statutes and federal hunting and fishing regulations in Indian country.  One of the criteria for receiving a SLEC is completion of the Criminal Jurisdiction in Indian Country (CJIC) seminar and passage of an exam at the end of the class with a score of 70% or higher.  This CJIC offering is the DOJ/BIA approved course that is frequently taught by United States Attorneys’ office (USAO) personnel at the District level.  The expectation is that officers attending this class will file all necessary paperwork to obtain a SLEC from BIA with 60 days of completion of the class.
