Indian tribal police are peace officers hired by those Native American tribes which have a constitutional government on reservations, as opposed to hereditary chiefs.

Description[edit]

Tribal police historically had several different titles—sheriffs, constables, regulators, lighthorsemen—and today work closely with local, state, and federal police agencies.
