In February 2012, the Governor created the State Law Enforcement Coordinating Council (Executive Order 01.01.2012.03).
The Council adopts written policies and procedures that provide a framework for State law enforcement agencies to coordinate their work. Collaborative efforts may concern homeland security; natural or man-made emergency response; actions to increase the safety of roadways and other forms of transportation; and targeted investigation and law enforcement of crime trends or specific criminal activity. Further, the Council explores ways that State law enforcement agencies can share resources and eliminate overlapping or redundant functions in areas such as campus security, communications, emergency planning, homeland security, information technology, procurement, and training.
The Executive Committee of the State Law Enforcement Coordinating Council is responsible for approving planned joint law enforcement actions of the Council, as well as determining which agencies will participate, and what resources to use.
