The Law Enforcement Innovation Center (LEIC) is an agency of the University of Tennessee Institute for Public Service at the Univeristy of Tennessee. Formed in 1997, LEIC is a leading training and technical assistance provider for the law enforcement community across the nation.

The Law Enforcement Innovation Center’s target audiences have grown from traditional law enforcement professionals to include other public safety personnel in diverse areas of the criminal justice system, including cybercrime, corrections, safe schools, substance abuse, safe neighborhoods, cold cases, and missing persons, as well as community policing and practices. The center’s project design and delivery strategies are based on extensive project management expertise with local, state, and federal training and technical assistance projects.
Our mission is to provide innovative and technology-based training and technical assistance (services) to law enforcement agencies and communities, meeting their ever-changing needs as we move forward in the 21st century.
