Muskogee MiniCon

Today at 1 p.m., Muskogee Chief of Police Johnny Teehee and Director of the Cherokee Nation Marshal Service Shannon Buhl will sign a memorandum of understanding between the two agencies at the Muskogee Police Department, according to Officer Lincoln Anderson at the department.

The memorandum will give both agencies an expanded ability to assist the other in their respective jurisdictions. The Muskogee Police Department will now be able to assist the marshals on tribal lands in the form of a cross deputization, and the Marshal Service gets added ability to assist the Muskogee Police Department.

Both agencies have always assisted the other with any need that may arise, however neither had a formal MOU in place to solidify the agreement.
