Attendees will review the list of steps Alabama’s only federally recognized tribe—the Poarch Band of Creek Indians—took to tackle jurisdictional barriers and successfully implement state legislation.
During this webinar, Bruce Lee, Poarch Band of Creek Indians Director of Public Safety, will discuss how the community was able to enhance multijurisdictional partnerships and increase public safety by overcoming barriers such as lack of state recognition, inability to use state academy for training, not honoring tribal courts, and much more.
