Law Enforcement

The Shoalwater Bay Tribal Police serves the Shoalwater Bay Indian Tribe in a variety of ways. On top of assisting with keeping order and peace, we conduct regular patrols of tribal properties and roadways, commence drone operations as needed, provide a safe place for Tokeland-area residents to dispose of unused prescription medication and provide an array of support to victims of crime.
