Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee (LECC)

In 1981, the Task Force on Violent Crime recommended to Attorney General William French Smith that a Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee (LECC) be established in each judicial district. Consequently, on July 5, 1981, Attorney General Smith issued AG Order #951-81 directing each United States Attorney to establish an LECC and to develop a district law enforcement plan. Associate Attorney General Rudolph Guiliani was designated to oversee the implementation of this directive. As a result, each district now has a Law Enforcement Coordinator to oversee LECC activities.

In addition to enhancing coordination and cooperation among federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, the Law Enforcement Coordinator is integrally involved in a variety of programs and initiatives. These include: Equitable Sharing; COPS; Anti-Violent Crime Initiatives; HIDTA; Anti-Terrorism Task Force; Drug Demand Reduction; Project Safe Neighborhoods; Weed and Seed; Firearms Initiatives; and Community Outreach, to name a few.

Additionally, the Law Enforcement Coordinator is responsible for identifying training needs and then developing appropriate training programs. This is often accomplished through partnerships with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. An annual LECC Conference which is designed for police chiefs, sheriffs, state and federal law enforcement executives.
