Indian Country Law Enforcement Coordination – BIA Special Law Enforcement Commission (SLEC) Training

February 7, 2017

On Feb. 7-9, 2017, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, in coordination with the Bureau of Indian Affairs, presented a Criminal Justice in Indian Country (CJIC) training seminar to more than 50 law enforcement officers from New Mexico and other jurisdiction seeking to obtain their BIA Special Law Enforcement Commissions (SLEC). SLECs are force multiplier because they permit tribal, local, county and tribal officers to assist in federal investigations of major crimes occurring in Indian Country. The three-day training seminar took place at the BIA’s National Training Center in Albuquerque. Assistant U.S. Attorneys presented on topics ranging from Indian Country criminal jurisdiction, federal search and seizure, and tort liability. At the conclusion of the seminar, the officers took a three-hour examination to receive their certification. Supervisory Assistant U.S. Attorney Kyle Nayback coordinated the seminar.
