Soboba Band cancels law enforcement pact

The Soboba Band of Lusie�o Indians has terminated its law enforcement agreement with the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.

No reason was given for the cancellation. It comes just a few months after the tribe agreed to fund an expansion of the services the sheriff provided to the reservation.

When the agreement was signed in 2005, it was considered a first in the county. The tribe was contributing about $400,000 to pay for extra services.
