The Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers (FLETC) provide tuition-free and low cost training to state, local, campus, tribal and territorial law enforcement agencies. Programs are conducted across the United States and are normally hosted by a local law enforcement agency. Training is also conducted at FLETC facilities located in Glynco (Brunswick), GA; Artesia, NM; Charleston, SC; and Cheltenham, MD.
The advanced training programs and workshops offered are developed with the advice, assistance and support of federal, state, local, tribal and campus law enforcement agencies and experts. Training is continuously updated to ensure accuracy and relevance to today’s issues and is certified by each state’s Peace Officer’s Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.) if/when certification is available.
FLETC supports law enforcement communities by providing low- and no-cost training programs that develop specialized law enforcement knowledge and skills.
FLETC delivers law enforcement training programs via host agencies throughout the United States. Learn who can be a host, what is required to become a host agency, and submit a request to host a FLETC training program.
