Synopsis: The second annual Regional Community Policing Summit for Northern
California will be held on September 24, 2012 from 9:00am to 5:00pm and September 25, 2012 from 9:00am to 12:00pm (noon) at Consolidated Tribal Health Wellness Center located on 6991 North State Street in Redwood Valley.

This training summit is designed to bring together Northern California tribal and non-tribal criminal justice and social service agencies, community leaders, and those interested in community safety to discuss best practices and strategies to create safer communities and prevent crime. This regional summit will include discussions on the Tribal Law and Order Act and Public Law 280 and how it can influence interagency partnerships. Additionally, the summit will discuss how Special Law Enforcement Commission Officers (SLEC Officers) can provide additional resources in support of agency relationships.

The summit will provide information and resources on maintaining strong partnerships. During the summit attendees will have an opportunity for forum discussion on Tribal Law and Order Act, Public Law 280, Special Law Enforcement Commission Officers, and how to promote safety through
collaborative partnerships.

The summit is hosted by the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office in partnership with Consolidated Tribal Health Inc., Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians, Hopland Tribal Police Department, Round Valley Tribal Police Department, and Fox Valley Technical College.

Sheriff Tom Allman stated that the overall purpose of this intense training is for attendees to leave with a full understanding of the “Tribal Law and Order Act” as well as a better understanding of Public Law 280. The high caliber presenters were selected because of their vast knowledge and interest in these topics.

There is no registration fee to attend this 1.5 day summit. A working lunch will be provided on September 24th. Pre-registration is required prior to September 14, 2012 as space is limited and to ensure adequate
