Meet NOAA's Office Of Law Enforcement

November 19, 2012 

This NOAA Fisheries video presents an inside look at NOAA's Office of Law Enforcement, a key part in protecting and conserving our nation's living marine resources and their habitat. NOAA's Office of Law Enforcement combines focused and effective criminal enforcement with more extensive compliance assistance, monitoring, patrols, and inspections. NOAA's agents and officers are responsible for enforcing more than 35 federal statutes over more than 3 million square miles of open ocean and 85,000 miles of U.S. coastline.
