Americans for Effective Law Enforcement was founded in 1966 as a non-profit corporation for the purpose of establishing an "organized voice" for citizens regarding the country's crime problem, and to lend support to professional law enforcement agencies. The organization also works to pressure for more efficient law enforcement through court action and information campaigns. The group became functional in early 1967 after receiving a tax-exempt ruling from the IRS. The first project undertaken was the filing of a friend of the court or amicus curiae brief in the Supreme Court. The New York Chapter was based in New York City and organized in the early 1970s. LeRoy Marceau became Executive Director of the state chapter in 1972.

The materials in the Americans for Effective Law Enforcement, New York Chapter collection document the chapter's early days through the by-laws, articles of incorporation, and constitution. The collection includes material from the period when LeRoy Marceau was Executive Director of the state chapter beginning in 1972. The collection is particularly strong in documenting the New York Chapter's solicitation for funding from individuals, corporations, and foundations when the New York Chapter was first organized. There is also correspondence with potential donors and officials from the Americans for Effective Law Enforcement national office in Evanston, Illinois. The collection includes research material from issues of interest to the organization such as school discipline, busing school children in the 1970s to create integrated schools, the bail system in New York City, and other related issues. The Legal briefs are some of the court cases for which the organization filed friends of the court, or amicus curiae, briefs. Alert was a publication of the national Americans for Effective Law Enforcement and it contains information about the activities of the state chapters and contemporary issues of interest.

The collection is organized alphabetically. There are no series.

The Conservative Party of New York State donated all items in this collection.
