New Oklahoma Bill To Allow Tribal Officers New Jurisdiction

Updated:
WYANDOTTE, OKLAHOMA -

A newly passed bill in Oklahoma gives tribal police officers jurisdiction on any land that a tribe owns. The tribe has to be federally recognized and the officer has to be state certified. For instance an Indian casino would be federally owned trust land, but the parking lot is on Tribally owned land. The previous law didn't allow a tribal officer authority on the parking lot, but the officer could act within the casino. The new law eliminates that boundary.
