The Law Enforcement Cyber Center (LECC) is a collaborative project of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), and the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF), and is made possible by funding from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, at the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs.
The LECC was developed to enhance the awareness, expand the education, and build the capacity of justice and public safety agencies to prevent, investigate, prosecute, and respond to cyber threats and cyber crimes. It is intended to be a national resource for law enforcement and related justice and public safety entities.
The LECC addresses three principal functional areas:
- Cyber crime investigations
- Digital forensics
- Information systems security
Much of the information available has been developed specifically for the LECC, but there are also links to useful outside resources. This should not be considered an exhaustive list of information pertaining to cyber security, investigations, digital forensics, and legal considerations, but is intended to provide interested readers with links to further information.
Who is the Cyber Center for?
We anticipate that this website will be helpful to police chiefs and executives, patrol officers, digital forensic investigators, and detectives investigating crimes that involve electronic devices. Further, while large law enforcement agencies may already be well equipped to handle large volumes of sophisticated cyber crimes, most law enforcement agencies are less well equipped and we hope this website will be of particular value to them.
