Oglala Sioux officers get training from state

The state of South Dakota is providing training for 12 police officers of the Oglala Sioux Tribe.

Tribal police normally receive training at a federal facility in New Mexico. But the tribe needed to quickly certify the officers to get them back on the streets. That's when the state stepped in and scheduled a training session.

The tribal officers are working alongside local police and sheriffs departments. Officials hope the session leads to greater tribal-state cooperation.
