Today, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board announced its new Executive Committee. The FLETA Board Executive Committee provides operational guidance and oversight for the FLETA Board activities. The FLETA Board is comprised of 21 senior executives and representatives from the federal government, academia, and other non-federal organizations as members of the FLETA Board.
The FLETA Board Executive Committee members include:
• Chair: Brian Peters; Chief of the Department of Interior National Law Enforcement Training Office
• 1st Vice-Chair: William Fallon; Assistant Director of the U.S. Marshals Service Training Division
• 2nd Vice-Chair: Domenic McClinton; Director of the Internal Revenue Service National Criminal Investigation Training Academy
• Parliamentarian: James Ward, Esquire; Director of the Department of Veterans Affairs Law Enforcement Training Center
The FLETA Board is the accrediting body for all federal law enforcement training and support programs. To achieve accreditation, agencies submit to an independent review of their academy and/or program to ensure compliance with the FLETA Standards and Procedures in the areas of: Program Administration, Training Staff, Training Development, and Training Delivery, with an additional 20 standards for Academies. Accreditation is a cyclical process occurring every five years. Each year, agencies must submit annual reports in preparation for reaccreditation, which is a new and independent review of the academy/program.
