Following Hurricane Idalia, Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers (FLETC) personnel located at Glynco, GA, and Charleston, SC are implementing recovery efforts.  FLETC’s Re-Entry Damage Assessment teams are inspecting facilities and grounds to ensure a safe return. Repairs for minimally damaged structures will be completed prior to the resumption of training.  

“The FLETC team did an outstanding job preparing for the impact of Hurricane Idalia. Thanks to all FLETC staff, Partner Organization colleagues, students, and the emergency service community for their cooperation and hard work leading up to and following the storm,” said FLETC Director Thomas J. Walters. “We are especially grateful to FLETC staff and security contractors who remained on-Center throughout the storm. While the storm passed with minimal structural damage to the FLETC Glynco and Charleston facilities, our hearts go out to any staff and community members who may have been negatively impacted.” 

Training at FLETC-Glynco will resume on Wednesday, September 6, 2023, and training at FLETC-Charleston will resume on Friday, September 1, 2023. 

A component of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, FLETC provides career-long training to law enforcement professionals to help them fulfill their responsibilities safely and proficiently. Through strategic partnerships, FLETC prepares the federal law enforcement community to safeguard the American people, property, and institutions.
