Glacier County officials signed a fully reciprocal cross-deputization agreement Thursday with the Blackfeet Tribe, a law enforcement pact that both parties called unprecedented. "This is truly a historic document," tribal attorney Sandra Watts told the Blackfeet Business Council. "It goes beyond anything else in the nation. In the past, there have been one-way agreements, but nothing that's truly reciprocal."
