Hoopa Tribal Police Again Working With Sheriff’s Office
Peace officer powers were reinstated for Hoopa Tribal Police today. Tribal officers will be able to enforce state laws even outside of tribal lands.
Information from a Facebook post from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office states,
Today, March 22, 2016, the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors approved the Memorandum of Understanding between the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, the Hoopa Valley Tribe, and County of Humboldt to cross deputize Hoopa Valley Tribal Police Officers.
The Sheriff’s Office looks forward to working with HVTPD in providing law enforcement in the Hoopa and Willow Creek areas.
