The Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee (LECC) was established on July 21, 1981 in all 94 U. S. Attorney’s offices by order of the United States Attorney General. LECC provides a networking focus for law enforcement executives committed to the idea of cooperation and coordination at the local, state and federal level. In addition, the LECC has undertaken activities and initiatives to promote crime reduction awareness and prevention programs.
Facilitation of communications is supported through meetings, joint operations and training. The informal contacts made on these occasions substantially contribute to subsequent problem solving. Police chiefs and sheriffs are brought together with state and federal law enforcement, regulators and prosecutors to discuss and initiate strategies to crime issues.
In addition, the LECC sponsors or co-sponsors no or low-cost training seminars addressing a variety of topics pertinent to both law enforcement and the community. The training is available to local, state and federal law enforcement and at some training is available for community involvement. Topics include asset forfeiture and equitable sharing, gangs, child exploitation, domestic violence, terrorism and other issues.
The LECC of the Middle District of North Carolina has provided a forum for the open exchange of ideas and information among agency members and will continue to lend support to facilitating law enforcement operations.
