A hub for technical knowledge management.
The National Domestic Communications Assistance Center (NDCAC) is a National center, organized under the Department of Justice (DoJ), designed as a hub for technical knowledge management that will facilitate the sharing of solutions and know-how among law enforcement agencies, and strengthen law enforcement's relationships with the communications industry.
The NDCAC will leverage/share collective technical knowledge and resources of law enforcement on issues involving real-time and stored communications to address challenges posed by advanced communications services and technologies.
It is important to note that the NDCAC will not conduct Research and Development (R&D), will not be responsible for the execution of any electronic surveillance court orders, and will not have any direct operational or investigative role in investigations. Rather, the NDCAC will provide technical knowledge and referrals in response to requests for assistance from any member of the law enforcement community.
Members of the Law Enforcement Executive Forum (LEEF) have been integrally involved in establishing the vision for the NDCAC. The LEEF is comprised of approximately 40 members and represents a wide range of Federal, State and local law enforcement agencies.
