In 1979, the Archaeological Resources Protection Act (ARPA) was enacted to strengthen protection of cultural resources based on an increasing level of threat, inadequate protection from earlier federal code, and to increase cooperation among agencies, professional archaeologists, and the interested public.  ARPA also modified permitting procedures for conducting archeological fieldwork on federal and tribal lands. WCRM provides ARPA law enforcement and archaeological damage assessment training, and other expert services across the Unites States.
