“When our Tribe declared a State of Emergency in April, we made it clear to our community that we would take on those who use and sell drugs on our Reservation. We made it public knowledge that we will deal with this epidemic. Hopefully the actions of our law enforcement community send a strong message that drug abuse is not acceptable on our lands. We have resources and support for our people who need help with addictions,” said Tribal President Tom Maulson.
The Lac du Flambeau Tribal Council and Police Department are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for Tribal Members, community residents and visitors to the Reservation. Chief Brandenburg added, "We are far from finished with our work to better the community. People have a choice to engage in illegal activities, and if they choose to do so we will bring them to justice."
