Abstract: Results indicate that in 2010, the self-identified American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) population totaled 5.2 million of the estimated 308.7 million people in the United States; about 3.5 million of the 4.6 million people living on American Indian reservations or in Alaska Native villages in 2010 were not AIAN and that tribally operated law enforcement agencies in Indian country employed 3,043 full-time equivalent (FTE) personnel in 2008.

It presents data from the 2010 Census of Population and Housing, which was conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, about American Indians and Alaska Natives (AIAN), their tribal affiliations, and the populations of AIAN reservations and villages. It also includes statistics on Federal suspects investigated and charges filed in Federal district court for offenses occurring in Indian country. This report describes tribal law enforcement agencies and the number of agencies with identifiable crime data in the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting Program.
