Colleagues,

It has been a little more than 100 days since my arrival at FLETC. Since then, I have visited with FLETC staff and our trusted partners to listen and learn about FLETC operations. With each site visit and conversation with staff throughout the enterprise, I am impressed with the dedication and commitment to FLETC’s mission.

As the new year begins, I’d like to acknowledge FLETC's efforts this past year. FLETC and our trusted partners trained nearly 67,000 students in Fiscal Year 2023, 27% more than the previous year. Even more important than the volume of training, together with our partners and contract staff we prepared tens of thousands of law enforcement officers and agents to protect our communities and safeguard our property and institutions. 

In 2024, it is my priority that FLETC continue to build upon past successes. In the coming weeks, we will issue our new strategic plan to ensure our entire team is moving in the same direction. I am committed to cultivating leadership development opportunities across the enterprise, to ensure our bench is deep with talented individuals ready to assume increased responsibility. I intend to capitalize on FLETC’s strengths and to streamline operations and processes where it makes sense, to ensure we can move at the speed of operations and be responsive to our partners’ training needs.  

I firmly believe the best way to meet our priorities is to take care of our workforce. To that end, many of my objectives in the coming year will center on increasing the wellness and resiliency of our workforce and ensuring they have the support needed to perform their important work. 

On behalf of FLETC’s senior leadership team, I look forward to collaborating this year with FLETC staff and trusted partners to prepare the law enforcement community to safeguard America. It is an honor to serve with this team in accomplishing such a vital mission.  
 
Viva FLETC,
Benjamine C. Huffman
Director, Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers
