Excerpt: Our site selection strategy was to choose Indian nations that varied on as many relevant dimensions as could be captured in such a small sample.’ The most important dimensions on which we sought significant variation were crime problems and other policing challenges, culture, economics, geography, and the management and administrative structure of the police department^.^ We chose Tohono O’odham and the Gila River Indian Community because they have similar cultural backgrounds but distinctly different geographical and economic settings. Both are 0 ‘odharn nations, located in their traditional homelands. Further, we anticipated that, as southwestern tribes near the Mexican border, they might share some important regional challenges, including the problems of illegal migration and drug smuggling. Nonethelesq we expected the overall set of problems to vary substantially between the tribes, since the Gila River Indian Community is greatly subject to the social and economic influence of a major city (Phoenix), while Tohono O’odham remains more isolated, more traditional, and more economically distressed.
