FLETC Celebrates 48 Years

Thursday, July 12, 2018

The Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers (FLETC) turns 48 in July. Since its founding in 1970, FLETC has grown into one of the Nation's largest providers of law enforcement training.

Over the course of FLETC's history, the threats the United States faces have changed and the training law enforcement officers require has evolved. But for nearly five decades, FLETC has remained a steadfast model of collaborative effort and efficiency in government, all while adapting and transforming law enforcement training to ensure those who protect our homeland are well-prepared for the dynamic environments they operate in.

As the Nation's enterprise resource for federal law enforcement training, FLETC is committed to meeting our partners' contemporary needs based on their operating environments. Thank you to all who celebrated our past, present, and future at our recent 48th Anniversary Luncheon. I appreciate your enthusiasm for our mission, and look forward to all we will do together in the future.
