Jason O’Neal, Chickasaw Nation Lighthorse Police Chief, was recognized for his pioneering work in cooperative law enforcement as he was awarded Chief of Police of the Year. O’Neal received the award Oct. 8 at the national conference of the National Native American Law Enforcement Association (NNALEA) in Las Vegas. Cooperation between American Indian Law Enforcement offices, agents, personnel, their agencies, tribes, private industry and the general public is the mission of the NNALEA, and O’Neal and the Lighthorse Police Department work toward this goal on a daily basis.
