Story By Kalia Baker

LAC DU FLAMBEAU - Wisconsin Indian Tribes will get almost $3 million of federal money. The Lac du Flambeau tribe will get more than $600,000 dollars.

That money is meant to reduce the amount of crime and the impact crime has on the reservations.

The U.S. Department of Justice hopes the grant will keep tribes safer.

In the last 4 years, the Department of Justice has given more than $400 million dollars to nearly 1,000 tribes.
