A Roadmap for Making Native America Safer (Roadmap) provides a path to make Native American and Alaska Native communities safer and more just for all U.S. citizens and to reduce unacceptably high rates of violent crime rates in Indian country. The Roadmap is the culmination of hearings, meetings, and conversations between the Indian Law and Order Commission (Commission) and numerous Tribal, State, and Federal leaders, non-profit organization representatives, and other key stakeholders across our country.
Of particular significance to those interested in nation-building and strengthening Native nation governments are the chapters "Jurisdiction: Bringing Clarity Out of Chaos," "Strengthening Tribal Justice: Law Enforcement, Prosecution, and Courts," and "Intergovernmental Cooperation: Establishing Working Relationships That Transcend Jurisdictional Lines."
