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

April 27, 2016

On April 26-28, 2016, 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.  U.S. Attorney Damon Martinez made welcoming remarks at the beginning of the seminar on April 26, 2016.  Supervisory Assistant U.S. Attorney Kyle Nayback and Assistant U.S. Attorney/Tribal Liaison David Adams coordinated the seminar.
