Standing Rock Sioux Tribe seeks police resources

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe only has nine police officers to patrol 2.3 million acres of land in North and South Dakota.

The tribe was using a Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) grant but the money ran out. The grant was paying for an additional four officers on the reservation.

The tribe hopes the Bureau of Indian Affairs will step up to the plate and fill positions that have been vacant.
