Attendees included tribal leaders and members, sheriffs from six counties, including San Diego Sheriff Bill Gore, Tribal police chiefs from ten tribal law enforcement departments, the Assistant U.S. Attorney’s Tribal Liaison for the Southern District of California, San Diego District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis; a Special Agent from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Office of Justice Service; and other honored guests and speakers.
Dear Tribal Leaders and Tribal Members;
The Tribal Law and Order Commission has released its 2013 report entitled “A Roadmap to Making America Native Safer.” Preparation of the report is required under the Tribal Law and Order Act of 2010, Public Law 111-211 (TLOA). The report sets forth a number of recommendations that speak to many of the tribal law enforcement funding issues faced by California tribes and other tribes in Public Law 280.
Board members are expected to attend four (4) quarterly Board meetings each year; at a minimum three (3) via teleconference and one (1) in-person for the June quarterly meeting (in-person attendance for all meetings is encouraged), attend at least one (1) CILS sponsored event per year, participate on 1-2 Board committees, contribute an average of 1-2 hours per month between quarterly meetings, attend Board development retreats and trainings, participate in annual strategic planning sessions and fundraising efforts, make a personally significant financial contribution each year (100% participation from the board is expected), and actively contribute their expertise to the Board's important role in CILS' organizational and programmatic affairs including recruiting new Board members as well as community relations.
