Oglala Sioux Tribal and Pennington County Law Enforcement Officials Discuss Collaboration

Ideas for cooperation between Pennington County and Oglala Sioux Tribal law enforcement officers was recently discussed a public forum meeting in Kyle, reports KOTA News. The law enforcement agencies are hoping to craft an agreement that would prevent offenders fleeing from one jurisdiction to another in order to avoid criminal penalties.

The meeting was held in part to discuss a potential agreement between the agencies, as well as to solicit public feedback and provide education on the measure.  Future meetings will be held to discuss jurisdictional issues.
