Crow Tribe takes steps to form tribal police force


November 25, 2019

The Crow Tribe has begun paperwork to form its own police department, after declaring a state of emergency over lack of Bureau of Indian Affairs law enforcement on the reservation.

The BIA has been the primary law enforcement agency on the reservation since the early 1980s, when BIA took over from the Crow Tribal Police. The FBI also has jurisdiction on reservations and typically investigates serious crimes on tribal lands.
