U.S. Attorneys Trent Shores and Brian Kuester Launch Pilot Project with Muscogee (Creek) Nation and Cherokee Nation to Address Missing and Murdered Indigenous Persons Cases

U.S. Attorneys of the Northern District of Oklahoma and the Eastern District of Oklahoma launched a pilot project to implement a Tribal Community Response Plan with Muscogee (Creek) Nation and Cherokee Nation.

The goal for the Tribal Community Response Plan pilot project is to establish a collaborative response from tribal governments, law enforcement agencies, and other partners by implementing culturally appropriate guidelines when investigating emergent cases of missing and murdered American Indians and Alaska Natives.

Each plan will be composed of guidelines addressing at least four different areas in response to MMIP cases: law enforcement, victim services, community outreach and media/public communications.
