Fred,

Provided they get a formal "Articulated Agreement" with the Snohomish and Skagit Counties Sheriff's Offices, they will have the same authority to arrest non-Indians both on- and off-reservation (it is actually a reservation of about 53 acres) as the Sheriff's Deputies from these counties.

I personally think this has the potential of being a very good thing for fishing and hunting law enforcement in the Sauk and Skagit above Rockport. It would sure be nice to see another 3 or 4 fish and game cops in that area on a regular basis. The poachers will have a problem with it though.
