The Metropolitan Law Enforcement Council. METROLEC is a consortium of over 43 local area police departments, 3 sheriffs departments and law enforcement agencies. The communities each contribute to the larger whole knowing that it is impossible for every community to be fully trained and equipped for every possible contingency. Therefore, local communities have banned together, with organizations such as METROLEC, uniting to help each other and making us all safer in the end. The member communities acknowledge that certain critical incidents call for a law enforcement response that may exceed the capabilities of any one single agency. METROLEC was designed for these type of incidents.
METROLEC consists of several operational components comprised of personnel from throughout the METROLEC communities. These units receive specialized training and equipment and are available to assist any of the member communities in their time of need.
The council currently operates several unique divisions:
– Canine Unit (K9)
– Computer Crime Unit (CCU)
– Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT)
– Peer support unit
– Bicycle team
– Mobile Operations Motorcycle Unit (MOP)
– Regional Response Team (RRT)
– Special Weapons & Tactics (SWAT)
