November 5, 2020
WARM SPRINGS, Ore. (KTVZ) -- Despite Oregon voters' approval of Measure 110, to decriminalize hard drugs, Warm Springs police won't adopt that policy and will enforce drug laws on the reservation, Police Chief Bill Elliott said Wednesday.
Here's Elliott's full statement, issued Wednesday afternoon:
"The Warm Springs Tribal Police Department wants to notify the public that even though new laws will be coming into effect in the State of Oregon regarding the possession of controlled substances, on lands that are under the jurisdiction of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs (CTWS) the current tribal and federal drug statutes will remain in effect within this jurisdiction.
