Annotation: This manual presents policies and procedures for the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) Public Safety Service (PSS) to follow in protecting the archeological resources located on TVA lands.
Abstract: The PSS has authority to pursue criminal and civil action against all violators of archeological sites on TVA- owned or controlled properties and will provide assistance to other TVA organizations and to law enforcement agencies external to TVA in investigations of archeological resource violations off TVA property. This manual explains the scope of PSS authority and possible actions under the Archeological Resources Protection Act (ARPA). Topics discussed include civil and criminal actions, the reporting of violations, criminal investigation procedure, and preliminary responsibilities. The manual then describes PSS patrol and response procedures. Topics addressed are report of an ARPA violation, patrol techniques for archeological sites, duties onsite when a violator is not present, discovery of a violation when the violator is present, elements of an ARPA violation, and officer options upon contact with a possible offender. Other materials in the manual are the text of ARPA, regulations for the implementation of ARPA, and information on an archeological assessment. Case studies of ARPA violations are provided.
