The FLETC Glynco campus is located equidistant between Savannah, GA, and Jacksonville, FL. The Center is actually a town unto itself with its own zip code (31524). It is known as Glynco, GA, and is located on the northwestern edge of Brunswick, GA.
Glynco is the headquarters facility for the FLETC. It is situated on 1,600 acres in southeast Georgia with modern conventional facilities such as classrooms, dormitories, and administrative and logistical support structures, including a dining hall capable of serving more than 4,000 meals per day. Additionally, Glynco has 18 firearms ranges, including a state-of-the-art indoor range complex with 146 separate firing points; and eight highly versatile semi-enclosed ranges with 200 additional firing points. Other training assets include a sprawling complex of driver training ranges, a physical techniques facility, explosives range, fully functional mock port of entry, and numerous other structures which support the entire training effort.
Among these is a 34-building "neighborhood" practical exercise area, which includes houses equipped with video cameras for recording various kinds of practical exercises.
The classroom buildings house various special purpose areas including a library, interviewing suites, mock court rooms, computer forensics laboratories, and other laboratories for fingerprinting and identifying narcotics.
Glynco’s physical techniques complex encompasses over three acres, including mat rooms, classrooms, weight rooms, gymnasium, and other facilities devoted to training and fitness.
Plans are currently under way to build and expand facilities at Glynco to conduct a wide array of programs to support the Homeland Security mission.
