about National Native American Law Enforcement Association in the Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement:

The National Native American (United States) Law Enforcement Association (NNALEA) was founded in Washington, D.C., in 1993. The founders were Native American (United States) men and women from law enforcement organizations across the United States of America where, except for tribal and Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) law enforcement agencies, they typically comprised fewer than 1% of agency personnel. NNALEA is headquartered in Washington, D.C., with chapters in New Mexico and Oklahoma. Membership includes Native American (United States) and nonNative American (United States) men and women who are sworn federal, state, local, or tribal law enforcement officers and local chiefs of police, as well as nonlaw enforcement officers. Executive officers must be Native American (United States) sworn law enforcement officers. By mid-2003 NNALEA estimated its membership at more than 700. NNALEA sponsors an annual training conference and publishes a quarterly newsletter.
