Standing Rock Sioux Tribe gets boost in law enforcement
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe will see a boost in law enforcement with 20 new police officers.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs has been sending more officers to patrol the 2.3 million-acre reservation. Just two years ago, only 9 officers were on the job.

The 20 officers will serve for six months while the BIA puts together a permanent force.
