Metropolitan Law Enforcement Council
The Metropolitan Law Enforcement Council (Metro-LEC) is a consortium of over fourty, local area police departments and law enforcement agencies, including the Plainville Police Department. These agencies work together to provide unique and highly specialized law enforcement resources to all of its member communities. This regional support system allows the communities involved to have immediate access to outstanding services, and equipment.
Law enforcement agencies are called upon to respond to an insurmountable number of unique crimes, emergencies and possible disasters. Recognizing these challenges the Plainville Police Department have partnered, with organizations such as Metro-LEC, uniting to help each other and making us all safer during these incidents. The member communities acknowledge that certain critical incidents call for a law enforcement response that may exceed the capabilities of any one single agency. Now they can call on the assistance of Metro-LEC for such situations.
Metro-LEC consists of several operational components, comprised of personnel from throughout the Metro-LEC communities. These units receive specialized training and equipment and are available to assist any one 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)
- Investigation Service Unit (ISU)
- Mobile Operations Motorcycle Unit (MOP)
- Regional Response Team (RRT)
- Special Weapons & Tactics (SWAT)
- Tactical Mountain Bike Unit (TMBU)
