Consumer & Environmental Protection

The Consumer and Environmental Protection Division is comprised of a consumer unit and an environmental unit. The Consumer Unit investigates and prosecutes unfair, fraudulent, and dishonest business practices which harm consumers and honest businesses. The Consumer Unit also receives and investigates consumer complaints. The Environmental Unit uses a combination of civil and criminal prosecution to enforce the laws that prohibit the illegal disposal of hazardous wastes and other pollutants onto public or private property and into the air and waterways.
