BIA swears in first Chickasha SLEC Officers

The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) swore in 13 Chickasha Police Department Officers for the Special Law Enforcement Commission (SLEC) on Friday afternoon. The SLEC is a cross-commission between the BIA and the Chickasha Police Department.  The SLEC allows Chickasha Police Officers to file cases federally when the incident involves members of federally recognized Indian tribes as victims, suspects, or both, according to the Chickasha Police Department.
