Two LEIU member Agencies Reach 50 Years of Continuous Membership Milestone!
The Executive Board of the Association of Law Enforcement Intelligence Units (LEIU) extends its congratulations to the two agencies who celebrated their 50 continuous years of membership in LEIU! The New Jersey State Police was recognized during the LEIU Awards Ceremony in Bloomington, Minnesota May 4, 2017. A Representatives from the Long Beach Police Department were unable to attend the Awards Ceremony. In 1967, these agencies made a commitment to increasing their professionalism in the law enforcement intelligence community and to become a part of a network of like-minded departments. LEIU was established in 1956 as a means for state and local agencies to share confidential information on organized, traveling criminals. From its 26 original charter member agencies, LEIU rapidly gained membership and influence as the only organization filling this critical need and has since become a leader in the field of criminal intelligence. Today, with 200 member agencies in 2 countries, LEIU remains the only organization of its kind to promote the professional trust, training, and communication required to facilitate the lawful and ethical sharing and use of criminal intelligence among law enforcement agencies. The foresight, commitment, and continued support these agencies has shown through the years have been instrumental to LEIU’s success.
