Tuesday Jul 21, 2020 - 02:00pm to 03:15pm EDT
Event Description: 

Review the steps Poarch Band of Creek Indians, Alabama’s only federally recognized tribe, took to overcome jurisdictional barriers to achieve implementation of state legislation known as the Poarch Band of Creek Indians—State Police Powers Act (Alabama Act #2018-393). Review the specific barriers that were overcome such as lack of state recognition, no available copies of memorandums of understanding that were in prior existence, inability to use state academy for training, not honoring tribal courts, etc. Discuss how this enhanced multijurisdictional partnership has supported increased public safety for the Poarch Creek community.
