ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEEDINGS OFFICE
Civil Resource Violations System: The goal is to provide an administrative law proceeding to process civil resource violations in a just, speedy, and cost-effective manner, much like the traffic violation system where a small fine is enough to help change people’s behavior in the long run. It will allow violators to understand their infraction, comply with the law and avoid a tedious and costly criminal process. This system will not supersede the criminal process, but will complement it and focus on cases of less severity. Many of the cases that fall into this category have traditionally been ignored in resource enforcement. In order to set up this system, the Department has adopted a set of administrative rules.
