Mille Lacs tribe, county at odds over law enforcement deal and boundaries

 


The Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe is denouncing a decision from Mille Lacs County officials last week to end a cooperative law enforcement agreement with the band.

The county says it revoked the agreement due to a dispute over state law. But what's really at the heart of the disagreement is a long-running dispute over the band's reservation boundaries.

The unanimous decision ends about 25 years of cooperation between the band's police department and the county sheriff's office.
