Morton County, ND – In August, North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple declared a State of Emergency in reaction to ongoing direct actions and demonstrations against construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) in Morton County, near the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal reservation.
Dalrymple’s State of Emergency enabled North Dakota law enforcement, specifically the Morton County Sheriff’s Department assisted by the state’s Department of Emergency Services, to take advantage of a program passed 20 years ago under the Bill Clinton presidency, the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (each participating state has a corresponding implementation statute).
“The Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) authorized states to enter into agreements with other states in order to share emergency management–related personnel during crisis situations. One of the only other times this compact was deployed outside of a natural disaster was for the Black Lives Matter protests in Baltimore after the death of Freddie Gray…According to a history of EMAC published in September 2014, the compact centers around empowering states to respond to massive hurricanes, and in particular, Hurricane Andrew, which caused nearly $25 billion in damages when it hit Florida and Louisiana in 1992…More recently, states used EMAC to work together during both Hurricane Sandy in 2012 and Hurricane Matthew in 2016. All 50 states, plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, participate in EMAC. With language mostly centering around natural disaster relief, the congressional joint resolution creating EMAC also notes it exists to help manage things like “community disorders, insurgency, or [an] enemy attack.” – DeSmogBlog, This Natural Disaster Assistance Law is Why Other States Are Policing Dakota Access Pipeline Protests
Wisconsin was one nearby state that sent officers from several departments. An “EMAC Response After-Action Report“ created by the Wisconsin State Patrol (WSP), acquired by Melissa Hill through a records request made using Muckrock.com, shows some details of their deployment.
The report states that Wisconsin provided a “mobile field force” of 17 state troopers, with additional personnel from the Dane, St. Croix, Marathon, and Rock County Sheriff’s Departments, in a detail lasting from October 9 until October 15, 2016. Two Wisconsin state troopers also served as a “Force Protection Team“, also called the “Less Lethal team“, on October 10 (Indigenous People’s Day/Columbus Day) when 27 people were arrested on or near a DAPL work site in Morton County, ND.
Among those arrested on October 10 was Rebecca Kemble, a Madison, Wisconsin alderwoman, who was present acting as a legal observer. Madison attorney Patricia Hammel, was also present in Morton County on October 10 but was not arrested. Hammel told the Wisconsin’s Isthmus what she observed after water protectors began their prayer ceremony at the pipeline site:
“Within an hour, about 50 law enforcement officers arrived and came marching up the highway…I was amazed to see that most of them were from Wisconsin.” – Patricia Hammel,
