Applicability of the Federal Advisory Committee Act to Law Enforcement Coordinating Committees

Headnotes: 

If the functions of Law Enforcement Coordinating Committees (LECCs) are limited to the exchange of information, or to making operational decisions involving law enforcement matters, they will not be covered by the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA). However, to the extent that a LECC performs “advisory functions” by giving advice and recommendations to federal officials, it would be subject to the FACA’s requirements when performing those functions.
