- an average of 10,000 arrests per month
- 1500 wrecked or abandoned vehicles towed every year
- At least 100 tribal members involved in narcotics related activity
- About 350 bodies a year found on the reservation
- Critical cultural and natural areas damaged or destroyed
The result? Tribal police led multi-agency efforts to break up large methamphetamine and cocaine rings on the reservation, placed School Resource Officers in each of the tribe's five schools, built a Fusion Center to collect and store offender data, built a Sex Offender registry, and has developed positive working relationships with dozens of agencies and organizations who share a common interest in solving the problems brought by drug smuggling.
