FLETC Graduates Memorial

The FLETC Graduates Memorial at the Glynco campus.

With Sincere Respect and Honor...

Thousands of America’s finest men and women have trained at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers and gone on to work as law enforcement officers serving their country in an exemplary manner. Unfortunately, many of these men and women have paid the ultimate price in service to their country.

To honor the memory of graduates who have died in the line of duty, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers has established the FLETC Graduates Memorial at the Glynco campus. Each year in May, a solemn and stirring ceremony marks the addition to the Memorial of the names of the graduates who have died in the line of duty during the previous year.

The original FLETC Graduates Memorial was dedicated during the Centers’ first Peace Officers Memorial Day Ceremony in May 1986. This, like all subsequent observations, was a joint Ceremony with our State and local law enforcement agencies. The original Memorial was a simple three-sided wall with granite plaques bearing the names of 23 FLETC basic training graduates who had died in the line of duty since the Center’s inception in 1970.

Unfortunately, in just nine short years, the Honor Roll of FLETC graduates who died in the line of duty outgrew the capacity of this Memorial. The new FLETC Graduates Memorial is a much larger edifice,with nine granite panels for engraving the names of our fallen comrades. Sadly, there are now 199 names on our Memorial, filling more than six of the panels.
