Scot Adair has been a Special Agent with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency since 1995. From the moment he learned about EPA”s criminal enforcement program, Scot knew that he wanted to make environmental law enforcement his career. Scot finds his work to be both challenging and rewarding and takes pride in helping to bring to justice those whose crimes put communities at risk from illegal pollution.
EPA”s special agents are responsible for investigating allegations of environmental crime and assisting the Department of Justice in building and prosecuting successful criminal cases involving the most egregious violations of environmental statutes, thus deterring future crimes. They are federal law enforcement officers with complete statutory authority to conduct investigations, carry firearms, make arrests for any federal crime, and execute and serve warrants.
