The Regional Environmental Enforcement Associations are alliances of regulatory and law enforcement agencies from 45 States, 4 Canadian Provinces, and several municipal, regional and federal agencies.

Members include state environmental regulatory agencies, attorneys general offices, law enforcement agencies and local prosecutor organizations.

The Regional Associations promote the effective enforcement of state and local environmental statutes and regulations, with a strong emphasis on criminal enforcement.

The Regional Associations provide state and local environmental enforcement professionals with a forum for training and networking, and with formal mechanisms for the exchange of information.

The Regional Associations operate the Regional Associations Information Network (R@IN), a password protected web site designed specifically for the environmental enforcement professional. Click on "Become a User" for information about becoming a registered user.
