    BIA Police

    Can anyone tell me about the BIA Police, like how they differ from Tribal Police. I understand that Tribal Police is hired by the individual tribes, but what does a Federally hired BIA Police Officer do?

    Basically police tribes and reservations that don't have their own police force, and oversea other tribal police organizations. In hiring, I believe preferential hiring exists for Native American applicants.


    Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the presence of justice.

    Ros, didn't we just have this exact conversation via PM? ;)

    Preference is given to Native American applicants, however it is not unusual to see other races in their ranks.

    I know of two tribal agencies not too far from where I'm from, and they are almost exclusively caucasian officers not of indian descent.

    A BIA Officer does the same thing as Tribal Officer, except they get paid more with benefits, like health, dental, vision, and a retirement package after 20 years. NOT IHS, and your tribe will care for you when they're through with you. I spent 10 years on a rez in SD. If it hadent been for the federal training, I'd have bailed sooner.
    The BIA has hiring prefrences for card carrying Native Americans, but will hire nonmembers who have the proper qualifications or educational requirements. If your already in the FLEO system, one can switch agencies in a matter of weeks, especially if one is willing to go to some meatgrinder rez'es. PM me if you have additional questions.
