The mission of the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement (LCLE) is to improve the operations of the criminal justice and juvenile justice system and promote public safety by providing progressive leadership and coordination within the criminal justice community.
The Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Criminal Justice was created by Executive Order #59 in 1967. The agency evolved from administering the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA) federal grant funds to a central point for criminal justice policy planning and development for the state. The Commission has fifty-eight members set by Revised Statue 15:1202.
The agency provides a forum for all elements of the criminal justice system to come together in common cause and to develop multi-agency programs which serve the needs of a wide range of criminal justice organizations, support proven, critical, or innovative operational initiatives through the grant programs administered by the agency, promote the highest professional and ethical standards in law enforcement through high quality training programs, and to provide quality services to the criminal justice community and victims of crime within the framework of state and federal law and policy.
The Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Criminal Justice is an Equal Opportunity Employer pursuant to the requirement of federal and state law.
