These LECs are funded by several police agencies in a given geographic area and overseen by an executive board, which is usually made up of police chiefs from member police departments. In 2012, for example, the Tewksbury Police Department paid about $4,600 in annual membership dues to the North Eastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council, or NEMLEC. (See page 36 of linked PDF.) That LEC has about 50 member agencies.

We are in a world of hurt when Mayberry Police receive a grant from DHS. It will be terrible when Barney Fife and Andy are dressed in black fatigues and tactical gear, driving around in an armored personnel carrier, going after Floyd the barber and Otis.

". . . According to the ACLU, the LECs are claiming that the 501(c)(3) status means that they’re private corporations, not government agencies. And therefore, they say they’re immune from open records requests. "
