The Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee (LECC) was established in 1981 in all 94 U.S. Attorney's Office by order of the U.S. Attorney General. LECC provides a networking focus for law enforcement agencies committed to the ideal of cooperation and coordination at all levels of state, local, and federal law enforcement.
The LECC is a program whose mission is to facilitate and promote communication, coordination and cooperation among state, local, and federal law enforcement agencies in the Eastern District of Louisiana by providing resources, information, training and technical assistance, thereby enhancing the effectiveness of the criminal justice system.
This mission is accomplished in many ways, but the main focus of our LECC program is training. The LECC sponsors low cost or no-cost training seminars addressing various subjects pertinent to law enforcement officials. These seminars are made available to all state, local and federal law enforcement agencies. Topics include asset forfeiture and equitable sharing, interview and interrogation, search and seizure, methamphetamine investigation, critical incident stress management, terrorism, Community Oriented Policing, and many other contemporary issues.
We also provide information and resources through our LECC Newsletter, which is distributed quarterly.
