To the Honorable, the Legislature:
Section 165.90 of the Wisconsin Statutes requires the Department of Justice to report on the performance of cooperative county-tribal law enforcement programs receiving aid under this section. This letter constitutes our report.
This marks the twenty-third year that the Department has awarded grants for cooperative county-tribal law enforcement programs. The statutes require counties and tribes to develop joint program plans. The Department requires plans to include resolutions of support for the plan adopted by county boards and tribal governing bodies, to signify cooperation and mutual commitment.
This program pays for a variety of law enforcement services to Native American communities across Wisconsin. Grants have been used for the costs of personnel, patrol, investigation, crime prevention, K-9 units, information technology, law enforcement training, alternatives to drug abuse and gang involvement, diversity training, cultural awareness education, and emergency/rescue equipment. An increasing number of grants are awarded to programs that include tribal police departments, generally helping to pay for tribal liaison personnel and patrol services provided to Native American reservations and communities.
The amount appropriated for this program in State Fiscal Year 2010 was $701,300. Grant funds come from tribal gaming receipts as appropriated in the biennial budget. For Calendar Year 2010, the Department issued 19 awards totaling $701,300. These awards were in the following amounts:
CY2010
County Tribe Award
Ashland Bad River
Chippewa $57,003
Barron St. Croix
Chippewa $12,259
Bayfield Red Cliff
Chippewa $56,122
Brown Oneida Nation $40,242
Burnett St. Croix
Chippewa $16,254
Forest Potawatomi $38,515
Forest Sokaogon Chippewa $33,065
