The Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers (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.

Located in the flat pinelands north of Brunswick, GA, is the former Glynco Naval Air Station, a base for the Navy’s fleet of airships, commonly known as blimps, which patrolled the coast for marauding German submarines during World War II.  The NAS property is now home to the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC).  Established in 1942, Glynco played an important role in the defense of the southern Atlantic coast during the war and greatly contributed to the cultural and economic life of Brunswick and Glynn County.

Interest in the legacy of Glynco has increased in recent years resulting in the installation of two new exhibits on the history of the base, one at the FLETC visitor’s center and one at the Brunswick Airport.  This popular history brochure accompanies a third exhibit installed at the Brunswick Public Library in the continuing effort to interpret the significant history of Glynco to the public.
