Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee (LECC)


LECC logo

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.

Community Oriented Policing Services

The Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) is the component within the U.S. Department of Justice dedicated to the concept that trust and mutual respect between police and the communities they serve is critical to public safety. This concept is the foundation of community policing and ensures that police and community stakeholders partner in solving our nation's crime challenges. Community policing is a law enforcement philosophy that focuses on community partnerships, problem-solving and organizational transformation. The COPS Office mission is to advance public safety through community policing.  Visit the Community Oriented Policing Services website.

Law Enforcement Technical Assistance and Training

The Office of Justice Programs (OJP) provides innovative leadership to federal, state, local, and tribal justice systems, by disseminating state-of-the art knowledge and practices across America, and providing grants for the implementation of these crime fighting strategies. Because most of the responsibility for crime control and prevention falls to law enforcement officers in states, cities, and neighborhoods, the federal government can be effective in these areas only to the extent that it can enter into partnerships with these officers.  Visit the Office of Justice Programs website.

National Criminal Justice Reference

Established in 1972, the National Criminal Justice Reference Service (NCJRS) is a federally funded resource offering justice and drug-related information to support research, policy, and program development worldwide.  Visit the National Criminal Justice Reference Service website.

Bureau of Justice Assistance BJA's mission is to provide leadership and services in grant administration and criminal justice policy development to support local, state, and tribal justice strategies to achieve safer communities. BJA supports programs and initiatives in the areas of law enforcement, justice information sharing, countering terrorism, managing offenders, combating drug crime and abuse, adjudication, advancing tribal justice, crime prevention, protecting vulnerable populations, and capacity building.  Visit the Bureau of Justice Assistance website.
