Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $599,995)

The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) is developing a comprehensive program of statistical data collection efforts to document justice system activities on tribal lands. Current collections target the federal justice system, jails in Indian Country, crimes reported by tribal law enforcement agencies, and tribal court systems. The proposed data collections will fill two major information gaps. This effort will conduct two separate, but related, surveys: one of the state and local law enforcement agencies and one of state and local prosecutor offices that provide justice services on tribal lands. These surveys will solicit information on administrative procedures and practices, tribal caseloads and provided services, and the capabilities of the agencies to report detailed data on the tribal matters
they handle. (CA/NCF)
