The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation Board Grants Reaccreditation to Two Training Programs from
The Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers
The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted reaccreditation status to The Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers’ (FLETC) Law Enforcement Fitness Coordinator Training Program and Criminal Investigator Training Program at the July 11, 2013 Board meeting in Brunswick, Georgia.
The Law Enforcement Fitness Coordinator Training Program (LEFCTP) provides training for law enforcement personnel who have the responsibility for developing and maintaining a departmental or agency-specific fitness program. In addition, the program is designed to give law enforcement personnel the instruction skills to teach law enforcement functional fitness concepts.
The Criminal Investigator Training Program (CITP) provides, on an interagency basis, a program of instruction that fulfills all the basic criminal investigative training requirements necessary for responsible and competent job performance. Rather than being agency-specific, the program addresses common knowledge, skills, and abilities that are expected of all investigators. In today's changing world, criminal investigators are faced with a variety of situations that, in addition to traditional law enforcement skills, require an awareness of and expertise in human behavior, modern technology, cultural sensitivity, law, and other interdisciplinary approaches to effective law enforcement. The CITP is designed to meet these training needs as identified through systematic program monitoring in the form of validation studies and continuous research, which includes feedback from partner organizations.
The FLETA Board is the accrediting body for all federal law enforcement training and support programs. To achieve accreditation, agencies submit to an independent review of their academy and/or program to ensure compliance with the FLETA Standards and Procedures in the areas of: Program Administration, Training Staff, Training Development, and Training Delivery, with an additional 20 standards for Academies. Accreditation is a cyclical process occurring every three years. Each year, agencies must submit annual reports in preparation for reaccreditation, which is a new and independent review of the academy/program.
