The LECC (Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee) was established on July 21, 1981 in all 94 U.S. Attorney's Offices by order of the U.S. Attorney General. 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.
Facilitation of communications is supported through committees and joint operations. The informal contacts made on these occasions substantially contribute to subsequent problem solving. Police chiefs and sheriffs are brought together with state and federal enforcers, regulators and prosecutors. This approach to problem solving has resulted in a number of task force operations directed at myriad violations of federal statutes ranging from narcotics to white collar crime.
In addition, the LECC sponsors, or co-sponsors, no or low-cost training seminars addressing various subjects pertinent to law enforcement officials. These seminars are made available to all federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. Topics include asset forfeiture and equitable sharing, gang activities, clandestine laboratories, OCDETF (Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force) investigations and prosecutions, and other contemporary issues.
