The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted reaccreditation status to the Federal Reserve Board (FRB) Basic Law Enforcement Course (BLEC) at the November 8, 2018 meeting in Glynco, GA.
The BLEC is a basic entry level law enforcement course for officers who work in a Federal Bank infrastructure protection environment. The training includes the protection of the people, assets, and property of the Federal Reserve System. The BLEC is 30 instructional days and consists of 236.5 hours of instruction. The average number of students per iteration of the program is nine.
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, Training Delivery, and Distance Learning. 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.
