Hopi Law Enforcement Services

Hopi Resource Enforcement Services (HRES) was created in 1989 through Hopi Tribal Resolution H049-89.  In 1994, through Resolution H-163-94, HRES was reaffirmed as a Law Enforcement entity to enforce Tribal Ordinances and State laws.

HRES oversees the Hopi Sex Offender Registration Tracking (HSORT) office that was established by Hopi Tribal Council Resolution H-049-2012.  HSORT monitors and tracks Hopi and non-Hopi members who were convicted as Sex Offenders at Tribal, State and Federal levels who live, work or go to school on boundaries of the Hopi Indian Reservation.

We, the members of Hopi Resource Enforcement Services, pledge to our people in providing quality, professional law enforcement service to the community, protecting life, culture and natural resources of the Hopi Tribe.

To be recognized as a progressive law enforcement agency now and into the future.
