National Coordinating Committee on Organized Crime
The National Coordinating Committee (NCC) and its five Regional/Provincial Coordinating Committees (RCCs) work at different levels to a common purpose: Create a link between law enforcement agencies and public policy makers to combat organized crime. The NCC is the primary forum that reviews progress of the National Agenda to Combat Organized Crime.
The NCC is responsible for the identification of national public policy issues, developing national strategies and initiatives to combat organized crime and advising the federal, provincial and territorial Deputy Ministers Steering Committee on Organized Crime on the nature, scope and impact of organized crime. It provides a national forum where the interests and concerns of Canada's law enforcement community can be brought to the attention of people who deal with law, policy and the administration of justice.
By contrast, the RCCs have a regional and operational focus. They identify issues and develop strategies to counter organized crime. They advise on the nature, scope and impact of organized crime, in their respective jurisdictions, as well as liaise with the NCC. The RCCs communicate operational and enforcement needs and concerns to the NCC, acting as a bridge between enforcement agencies and officials and public policy makers.
The mandate of the NCC is to:
- Serve as a forum in which federal, provincial and territorial officials and representatives from the law enforcement community can identify major issues and determine national policy priorities related to the problem of organized crime
- Advise the Deputy Ministers Steering Committee on Organized Crime on the development, coordination and implementation of policies, legislation and programs aimed at combating organized crime
- Encourage effective coordination of anti-organized crime activities among various players at the regional and local level through support to the RCCs
Membership of the NCC is limited in order to achieve a balance between stakeholder representation and effective management. Membership is open to:
- Federal, provincial and territorial Assistant Deputy Ministers (or their designates) who have primary responsibility for public safety and/or policing in their respective jurisdictions, including representatives from criminal law policy and prosecution services
- Senior representatives of the policing community in Canada, including Chiefs of police (or designates) from the major urban police forces; heads (or designates) of provincial police forces or their RCMP equivalents; senior representatives of the RCMP Federal Policing Directorate
- Senior representatives of other federal and provincial authorities that have responsibilities directly related to the problem of organized crime
