US Attorney in Montana develops crime unit for Indian Country
The U.S. Attorney's Office in Montana has created an Indian Country Crime Unit.

Six prosecutors will run the unit. They will focus on enhancing communication with tribes, provide more training opportunities for tribes and develop deadlines for handling of cases.

"I greatly appreciated being warmly welcomed by tribes this past week and the opportunity to talk face-to-face with tribal representatives on how we can jointly reduce crime, improve public safety and enhance the quality of life in Indian Country," U.S. Attorney Michael Cotter said in a press release.
