Montana US Attorney unveils Indian Country Crime Unit

Helena, Montana (AP) November 2010

Montana U.S. Attorney Michael Cotter met with tribal leaders this week to introduce a newly formed unit to help prosecute crime on Indian reservations.

Cotter traveled the state to meet with tribal representatives from the Blackfeet, Fort Belknap, Fort Peck and Rocky Boy’s Indian reservations. He says the Indian Country Crime Unit is made up of six assistant U.S. Attorneys.

Cotter also outlined a plan to focus on enhancing communication with tribal governments, increasing the number and quality of training opportunities for the tribes, and setting deadlines by which the federal government and the tribal government should determine the jurisdiction of cases.

The plan also will focus on encouraging tribes to provide child victims with more services.
