Local vs Federal Law Enforcement on Public Lands. Who has authority?

County Sheriffs and Federal Law Enforcement

The question of who has authority has been a hot topic in the West. It most recently came to a boiling point in Clark County Nevada between Rancher Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management. The standoff has many local elected officials, particularly the Sheriffs concerned that the federal government is overstepping it’s boundaries.

We invited Former Millard County Sheriff Ed Phillips, Garfield County Commissioner LeLand Pollock and Garfeild County Sheriff Danny Perkins to talk about the issue. Commissioner Pollock and Sheriff Perkins had just returned from meeting in DC on this very topic.
