FBI/LEEP Virtual Command Center Success Story

FBI/LEEP Virtual Command Center Success Story



Recently, FBI’s Law Enforcement Enterprise Portal (LEEP) utilized Virtual Command Centers (VCCs) to coordinate 73 FBI Child Exploitation Task Forces across the country, while also providing intelligence in support of Operation Cross Country. The initiative concluded with the recovery of 149 sexually exploited children and the arrests of more than 150 pimps and other individuals. The operation was conducted in 135 cities nationwide and included several federal, state, and local law enforcement. More than 500 law enforcement officials participated in the operation.


LEEP was created to help facilitate the exchange of facts, leads, news, and intelligence among criminal justice agencies with a single sign-on and ultimately strengthen collaboration among law enforcement, criminal justice, and public safety communities. This meaningful exchange is a top priority of US law enforcement.


As a member of the Information Sharing Environment’s Sensitive But Unclassified (SBU) Working Group, LEEP acts as a gateway that provides law enforcement agencies, criminal intelligence groups, and criminal justice entities access to beneficial resources. This collaboration extends beyond LEEP and into other networks to include DHS’s HSIN, RISS, and Intelink-U.
