Wyoming Lawmakers Meet to Discuss Indian Reservation Crime
Wyoming lawmakers will hear testimony about reducing crime on the Wind River Indian Reservation. Members of the Wyoming Legislature's Joint Judiciary Committee and Select Committee on Tribal Relations are meeting in Ethete (EE'-thuh-tee) on Tuesday to hear from state and federal law enforcement and other officials. The Wind River Indian Reservation is home to both the Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone tribes. The federal government recently increased law enforcement there as part of a push that targeted four Indian reservations nationwide. Reports of crime on the Wind River Indian Reservation increased under the federal push. But some officials say reports increased because residents became accustomed to seeing an immediate police response when they called for help. Julian Hubbard of the Northern Arapaho Business Council says the situation is getting better.
