Since 1995, FLETC has participated in the International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA) Program. ILEA academies are located in Hungary, Thailand, Botswana, and El Salvador.
ICBB serves as liaison and coordinates FLETC activities and participation at each of the ILEAs, providing academic, program, and operational support.
In addition to providing instructors for the core and specialized programs at each of the ILEAs, the FLETC has personnel assigned as the Director of ILEA Gaborone and the Deputy Director of ILEA Bangkok, who provide oversight and program management.

- The objectives of ILEA-Bangkok are to support criminal justice institution building in Asia, with an emphasis on rule of law and strengthening partnerships and cooperation amongst the law enforcement communities of Asia. Our training addresses problems such as narcotics, terrorism and other transnational crimes, and promotes the use of global crime-fighting tools such as mutual legal assistance and extradition. ILEA’s varied Specialized Courses and the Senior Criminal Justice Executive Programs address specific topics of interest and significance to Asia.
- The United States and the Government of Hungary have cooperated to create the International Law Enforcement Academy in Budapest, Hungary. Located on the "Buda" side of the city, the Academy offers training opportunities for up to 130 students at one time. In addition to topical seminars and courses, an International Law Enforcement Academy Program has been established similar to the domestic FBI National Academy Program in the United States, but is conducted with simultaneous translation to eliminate the requirement for students to speak English.
- On July 24, 2000, in view of their long standing and close cooperation in law enforcement regarding their mutual interest in combating transnational crime, the United States and the Botswana governments entered into an agreement for establishing an International Law Enforcement Academy that provides training for middle managers from eligible countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
- The objectives of ILEA San Salvador are to support regional law enforcement community in criminal justice institution building and strengthening partnerships in their regions. The training focus is on transnational crimes, human rights, and the rule of law with emphasis on trafficking in narcotics, trafficking in persons, terrorism, money laundering, and other financial crimes.
