Updates from the Court Regarding Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response
PGST Community Court is committed to protecting the safety and security of our community while performing our Constitutional duties. The Court is open and we are operating all hearings and emergent court matters on a virtual platform.
The Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe operates a Tribal Court with jurisdiction over criminal, civil and juvenile matters. Appeals are heard by a three-judge Court of Appeals.
The Tribe’s primary governing document is its Constitution, which was adopted in 1939 and has been subsequently amended. An extensive code of laws with more than 20 chapters regulates fishing, hunting, gaming, traffic, domestic relations, and public health; protects children and vulnerable adults; sets forth the criminal laws of the Tribe, court and appellate procedures; and covers a growing list of other subject matters.
Copies of the Tribe’s Law & Order Code are available here on the website. Copies of pages or sections can be obtained from the court or from the Tribal attorney’s office.
You can make application to the Tribe's Reentry Program and Healing to Wellness Drug Court Program by downloading the applications in the "Documents for Download" section.
