About the Warm Springs Tribal Police

The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs (Oregon) consists 4,000 tribal members from the Wasco and Pauite Native American tribes in Central Oregon. In 1937, the three tribes organized as the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation of Oregon by adopting a constitution and by-laws for tribal government. In 1938, they formally accepted a corporate charter from the United States for their business endeavors. These organizational documents declared a new period of tribal self-government on the Warm Springs Reservation.


Warm Springs Tribal Police activity is administered through the Tribal Chief Operating Officer as a Branch of the Tribal administration.  Currently called the Public Safety Branch, the Warm Springs Tribal Police share the following mission with other public safety departments: “Provide a safe community by protecting life and property on the Warm Springs Reservation and ensuring the rights of all community members are given due consideration and protection by the Tribes.”


The public safety branch consists of the following departments: Corrections; Support Services; Patrol & Community Policing; Criminal Investigation; Fire & Safety; Juvenile Coordinator; Tribal Prosecutor; Parole & Probation; and, Victims of Crime.

In addition to keynote speeches and seminar presentations, Smith instructs casino employees in the subtleties of detecting deception.  His is the author of Cold River Rising; Dear Departed; and Fatal Flowers.  Ann Rule said “Fatal Flowers is a chilling authentic look into the blackest depths of a psychopath's fantasies, not for the faint at heart...Smith is a cop who's been there, and a writer on his way straight up. Read this on a night when you don't need to sleep. You won't.”

According to the book description of Dear Departed, “Barely escaping the same fate as her murdered sister when a mysterious bearded man comes to her rescue, Detective Sergeant Natalie Collins becomes a desperate fugitive when she is blamed for the killing.”

According to the book description of Fatal Flowers, “Kidnapped and kept by a serial killer, Ellie Hartley is shocked when the killer suddenly and inexplicably lets her go, and as the killer sends her flowers to let her know he is watching her, she begins to wish he had not released her.”
