Why aren't the police concerned with environmental crimes such as pollution?

Check out the Chicago Water Reclamation District Police. They

already have enough work to do. Such as dealing with criminals,

rapist, murder suspects and other issues. I think that the

government should have a team designed just for enviromental

crimes. * There is a team - The Environmental Protection Agency. It

has almost unchecked authority to make and enforce regulations. The

rules and regulations regarding environmental pollution are almost

all Federal. As such the Federal authorities enforce them, rather

than local or state law enforcement. That is not to say that they

would ignore such things, but they are not on the top of the

priority list.
