Office of Law Enforcement Coordination

Bridge Builders

The FBI Office of Law Enforcement Coordination (OLEC) was created to build bridges and strengthen relationships between the FBI and the law enforcement community. The OLEC facilitates two-way communication, collaboration, and a high level of customer service. It supports the FBI in coordination with its law enforcement partners to uphold the law and protect the United States from criminal and terrorist activities.

Working Together for a Safer America

Director Robert S. Mueller, III established the OLEC to enhance coordination and communications between the FBI and its federal, state, and local law enforcement partners on a national level. The Office provides advice and guidance to FBI executives regarding the utilization of state and local law enforcement expertise and resources in criminal, cyber, and counterterrorism investigations, as well as recommends policies and programs to enhance the FBI's working relationship with its partners.

The OLEC serves as the FBI's primary liaison for the national law enforcement associations and represents the perspective of police and sheriff departments within the FBI. The OLEC coordinates the Director's Law Enforcement Advisory Group and supports the FBI's intelligence-sharing and technological efforts with state and local law enforcement.

The OLEC is also responsible for liaison with the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice's Office of Justice Programs and Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, and other federal agencies.

Champion for Law Enforcement Collaboration

On April 10, 2002, Director Mueller appointed Louis F. Quijas to the position of FBI Assistant Director to oversee the efforts of the newly created Office of Law Enforcement Coordination. Prior to his appointment, Mr. Quijas was Chief of Police for the City of High Point, North Carolina, after serving 25 years with the Kansas City, Missouri, Police Department.
