Cooperation among the U.S. Attorney's Offices (USAO) and federal, state, local and tribal law enforcement has only grown more important over time.  The Law Enforcement Coordination Committee (LECC) Program is an effective way for the Department of Justice and U.S. Attorney's Offices to create and maintain strong pathways for communication, cooperation and collaboration with local, state, tribal and federal law enforcement officers and agencies.  The Program helps to structure law enforcement engagement in the Northern District of Georgia, by providing resources, information, training, and technical assistance to those agencies.  

The term "law enforcement agencies" includes: Sheriff's offices, police departments, campus and university police, state and local prosecutors (District Attorneys, State Attorney General, Prosecuting Attorneys' Council of Georgia), the Georgia Department of Public Safety, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the Georgia State Patrol, and all federal law enforcement agencies.  It also includes other law enforcement agencies in the criminal justice system, including Corrections and Pardons and Paroles.  In the Northern District, there are nearly 400 law enforcement agencies. In the Northern District of Georgia, the program is managed by Law Enforcement Coordination Committee (LECC) Specialist Dr. Shila Hawk.
