The Law Enforcement Contacts Policy & Data Review Committee (LECC) is a statewide governor appointed committee that is charged with the duties of assisting Oregon law enforcement agencies perform their missions without inequitable or unlawful discrimination. LECC tasks include intake of complaints of profiling from the general public, collecting and analyzing profiling complaint reports from Oregon law enforcement, anti-bias training, and community outreach.
The LECC recognizes that biased policing, whether actual or perceived, impacts relationships between marginalized communities and law enforcement agencies. In order to foster relationships within the community, the LECC has taken a multi-pronged approach led by committees in order to assure equitable outcomes.
The LECC furnishes and publishes a wide variety of free and publicly available reports. These include annual reports, meeting minutes and other reports.
Oregon House Bill 2002 signed into law on July 13, 2015, authorizes the LECC to initiate profiling complaints against Oregon law enforcement received from the general public.

“Your team and the material were engaging and enlightening. The curriculum you are bringing to the police teams is something you should all be proud of. I am looking forward to the next round of training. Well done!”
