Abstract: The survey was an enumeration of all 70 confinement facilities, detention centers, jails, and other facilities operated by tribal authorities or the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

The report presents data for each facility, including rated capacity, number of adults and juveniles held, number of persons under community supervision, number of persons confined on the last weekday of each month since July 2001, average daily population during June, peak population during June, number of admissions in the last 30 days, inmate characteristics (such as conviction status, DWI/DUI offense, and seriousness of offense), number of inmate deaths, facility crowding, and jail staffing. Highlights include the following: (1) at midyear 2002, jails in Indian country supervised 2,080 persons; (2) since 1998, the number of inmates in custody at midyear has increased by 26 percent, and rated capacity has increased 12 percent; and (3) thirty-five percent of inmates were being held for a violent offense, 15 percent for domestic violence offense.
