The states of South Dakota and North Dakota have reached an agreement to work with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to crack down on sex offenders.
The states and tribe will share offender and conviction data, process DNA samples, and advise each other of offenders moving across jurisdictional boundaries.
South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley, North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem and Standing Rock Tribal Chairman Charles Murphy announced the agreement on Friday. It will enable the tribe to put data from its sex offender registry on a national database.
The Standing Rock reservation straddles the North Dakota-South Dakota border.
