The Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee (LECC) provides a networking focus for law enforcement agencies throughout Southern Ohio committed to the ideals of cooperation and coordination at all levels of local, state and federal law enforcement. The LECC facilitates and promotes coordination, communication and cooperation among federal, state and local law enforcement agencies by providing resources, information, training and technical assistance.
The LECs act as a central repository for daily federal intelligence and distribute federal intelligence and advisories to local law enforcement statewide. This intelligence is also picked up by others who forward it to the spheres of influence as well. This distribution also includes officer safety advisories and training notices in the region.
The LECs plan, facilitate and sponsor training for the law enforcement community statewide. These trainings cover many areas of interest, including terrorism, intelligence sharing, asset forfeiture, Project Safe Neighborhoods, identity theft, and others. Corporate entities and community leaders are welcome in these training unless specified otherwise due to the nature of the intelligence being shared. The training is conducted in sponsorship with state and local agencies by design staying consistent with our model of building partnerships.
The LEC duties include:
- Serve as an advisor to the United States Attorney and District Staff on matters specific to his/her working capacity and expertise.
- Serve as liaison/contact person for the United States Attorney with law enforcement and government agencies at the local, county, state and federal levels, community representatives, and service and professional organizations.
