Tribal Justice Agencies in American Indian and Alaska Native Tribal
Jurisdictions is the first comprehensive effort by the Department of Justice
to document tribal justice agencies, the services they provide, and the capacity
among American Indian and Alaska Native tribes to collect and report information
on crime in their jurisdictions. Special emphasis will be made to identify the
tribal justice forums used for resolving disputes, tribal court services and
personnel, law enforcement agencies, record keeping methods, and crime reporting
practices. Please review the Draft
