Public Safety in Indian Country– PL 280 and Working Solutions between Tribes and Local/State Partners

June 24, 2015

River Lodge, Fortuna, CA

California Indian Legal Services would like to announce a conference on June 24, 2015 focusing on Public Law 280 and on cooperative interactions between tribal, federal, state, and local law enforcement and courts. The conference will be held at the River Lodge in Fortuna from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The conference is intended primarily for government officials and employees in the Northern California region, although it will include coverage of some issues common throughout the state. Our hope is to provide both legal education on Public Law 280 as well as a forum for productive discussions between tribal, federal, state, and local elected officials, judges, attorneys, and law enforcement personnel.

There is no cost to attend, and lunch will be provided.

If you are interested in attending, please keep June 24th open on your calendar, and email Laura Svoboda at lsvoboda@calindian.org for registration information. Early registration will be greatly appreciated, as we need an accurate head count for lunch. If you have any questions about the conference, please email Jedd Parr at jparr@calindian.org, or call (707) 443-8397.
