DOJ's Toulou Provides SCIA With Update on Tribal Law and Order Act


Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), chairman of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, at the opening of an oversight hearing titled “Tribal Law and Order Act (TLOA) – Five Years Later,” posed the question: “How have the justice systems in Indian country improved?”

The TLOA upon its implementation was “charged to the federal government to provide tribal governments with the tools they need to better protect their communities, to live up to our treaty and trust obligations and to be more accountable for our efforts to enhance public safety in Indian country,” Tracy Toulou, director of the Office of Tribal Justice at the U.S. Department of Justice, said on December 2.
