On July 27, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. ET, the Office for Victims of Crime Training and Technical Assistance Center (OVC TTAC) will present an online Expert Q&A discussion with Herman Millholland and Steve Siegel on "Environmental Crime Victim Assistance Program."
Environmental crimes often involve injury or harm to human, pet, and wildlife health and the environment. These criminal violations may result in direct and proximate harm in the form of adverse health impacts or, in the most extreme cases, death. Organizations and businesses may also suffer economic harm due to violations of federal environmental laws and other associated crimes. This session will provide an overview of the Environmental Crime Victim Assistance Program and address the unique victim identification and rights issues associated with environmental crimes.
