The Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee (LECC) was established on July 21, 1981 in all 94 U. S. Attorneys' Offices by order of the United States Attorney General. The LECC provides a networking focus for law enforcement executives committed to the ideal of cooperation and coordination at all levels of local, state and federal law enforcement. U. S. Attorney John Malcolm Bales continues the Office's historical commitment to cooperation and partnerships with fellow law enforcement agencies directly and indirectly through his Public Affairs Coordinator Davilyn Walston.
The LECC sponsors and co-sponsors training seminars for federal, state and local law enforcement agencies addressing a variety of subjects such as Interview and Interrogation; Body Language; Hate Crimes; Community Oriented Policing; Report Writing, Courtroom Testimony, Project Safe Neighborhood Training and many other topics to help officials stay abreast of the latest information. Through these seminars and various meetings, the LECC also provides a forum for the open exchange of ideas and information among law enforcement agency members and will continue to lend support to facilitating cooperative and joint law enforcement operations. Most recently the LECC provided four one day money laundering seminars which trained hundreds of officers and agents.
Additionally, Ms. Walston coordinates activities to promote citizen awareness, such as providing speakers for community and school groups; and initiatives designed to promote crime reduction and prevention, such as Project Safe Neighborhood, Street Smarts, Internet Safety, Drug Awareness and Red Ribbon Week presentations.
