The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), Office of Justice Services (OJS) issues Special Law Enforcement Commissions (SLECs) to tribal, federal, state, and local full-time certified law enforcement officers who will serve without compensation from the Federal government. This process allows BIA to obtain active assistance in the enforcement of federal criminal statutes and federal hunting and fishing regulations in Indian country. One of the criteria for receiving a SLEC is attendance at the Criminal Jurisdiction in Indian Country (CJIC) course and passage of an exam at the end of the class with a score of 70% or higher. Successful completion of this class will also satisfy one of the BIA’s criteria for tribal officers seeking to meet BIA Basic Police Officer training certification requirements. The webinar is restricted to law enforcement officers who are deemed eligible by BIA to attend. There is no cost for attending this webinar.
