Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee


 The concept of a Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee (LECC) was formed in 1981 and is a permanent cornerstone of joint federal, state, and local law enforcement efforts. The goal is for the LECC is to improve cooperation and coordination among law enforcement groups, thereby enhancing the effectiveness of the criminal justice system. Because the Middle District of Florida includes a large geographic area as well as a vast population base, joint training and networking of all levels of law enforcement is key.

The focus of the LECC Program is directly related to the vision and desires of the United States Attorney, as well as direction from the Department of Justice.

LECC membership in the Middle District of Florida is available to any local, state, or federal law enforcement agency, the military, state attorneys, and local units of government. Evidence of cooperation and team work among local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies can be seen in the numerous joint investigations and operations throughout the District.

The LECC Program encompasses eight component areas:

  • Law Enforcement Training
  • Technical Assistance
  • Violence, Gangs, and Drugs
  • Community Outreach
  • Public Relations
  • Task Force Support
  • Asset Forfeiture (Community Assistance)
  • Special Initiatives
    • Project Safe Childhood
    • Project Safe Neighborhoods
    • Hate Crimes Working Group
    • Comprehensive Anti-Gang Initiative(CAGI)
    • Ex-Offender Re-Entry
