Tribal Consultation Conference Addresses Public Safety

Posted: Updated:

United Tribes Technical College will host the North Dakota U.S. Attorney's Office Third Annual Tribal Consultation Conference on Thursday, August 1.

The conference will focus on improving public safety on North Dakota reservations, and will give interested parties a chance to discuss the issue and identify areas for cooperation and improvement.

"The purpose of this Tribal Consultation Conference is to bring together tribal leaders and law enforcement leaders from across the state to discuss how the U.S. Attorney's Office can help improve public safety in tribal communities in North Dakota. We will listen to tribal concerns in breakout sessions on pressing issues such as domestic violence and juvenile justice. We will also hear from Tribal leaders, our federal law enforcement partners, the Chief Judge of the United States District Court, Ralph R. Erickson, the North Dakota Indian Affairs Commission, and child protection professionals. By bringing these key stakeholders together, the U.S. Attorney's Office's hopes to continue our march forward toward safer tribal communities," says North Dakota U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon.

The conference will be held at the James Henry Community Center on the campus of United Tribes Technical College.
