Criminal Enforcement's Intergovernmental Partnerships

The EPA Criminal Enforcement Program has formed strong partnerships with many other federal, state, tribal and international law enforcement agencies. These partnerships support the enforcement of environmental criminal statutes as well as ancillary statutes such as mail fraud, wire fraud, conspiracy, money laundering and RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization.) The partnerships and coordination of agencies provide broad based support for the criminal prosecution of both organizations and individuals. This is accomplished by combining resources, technical expertise and coordinating investigative approaches and activities. In the international arena, the EPA Criminal Enforcement Program works jointly with international police organizations to identify and apprehend fugitives of environmental crime and secure witnesses for investigations.
