Resource Protection


Vandalism permanently destroys the prehistoric record which can only be found in the remains left behind by their makers. It is a crime to steal or destroy cultural resources on Federal or State land. The Archaelogical Resources Protection Act of 1979 makes stealing and vandalizing antiquities on federal lands a felony, with penalties of up to $100,000 and/or 5 years imprisonment.

Fight Vandalism. Cultural resources need your help. Join the fight to protect artifacts and sites by reporting acts of theft or vandalism. Provide all the information you can as to time, location, license plate number, descriptions, etc. No amount of information is too little. Sometimes a single clue will lead to the arrest and conviction of a thief or vandal. Do not attempt ot confront or apprehend the violator. Leave this to professional law enforcement personnel.

If you see or know of any vandalism to cultural resources contact the nearest law enforcement or Crime Stoppers number.
