The study compiles data on the law enforcement, courts and
administration, corrections and intermediate sanctions, criminal
history records, and justice statistics of the federally recognized
American Indian tribal governing bodies. The data determine which
tribes have sworn law enforcement personnel and the source of
authority, what the number and type of tribal court systems are, who
performs the tribal detention function and what types of sanctions are
imposed. It also looks at whether tribes have access to state and
national criminal record systems.
