On September 11, 1982, President Ferdinand E Marcos lifted Martial Law and signed Executive Order Nr. 829 ordering the Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee (LECC) be created at the national, regional, and provincial levels of the Peace and Order Council to serve as venue for the coordination of all law enforcement activities of various law enforcement agencies.
The creation of the LECCs abolished the National Committee on Anti-Organized Crime that was established pursuant to Letter of Instruction Nr. 824 in 1979.
Its function, duties, responsibilities, and instrumentalities were absorbed by the Peace and Order Council created pursuant to Executive Order Nr. 727 in 1981.
