Sault Tribe Emergency Management

Emergency Management provides emergency support to the Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians Seven County Service area—to include information, equipment, emergency notification and planning. It also manages the Sault Tribe Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and develops all operational plans, and procedures to ensure public safety during an emergency event. An emergency management blog is also available to the public.


Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA):

The Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) is Title I of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006. SORNA is a set of mandatory minimum standards for all jurisdictions, including federally-recognized tribes in the United States. It was enacted to help close some jurisdictional loopholes and to strengthen the nationwide network of sex offender registration and notification programs.

Sault Tribe Law Enforcement has listed a number of websites that contain information on SORNA, Michigan’s public registry, Federal Registry, inmate information and other information to help keep the public safe.
