As of March 17, 2020, The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Office of Accreditation (OA) is teleworking. Our physical offices on the FLETC Glynco are closed until further notice. Due to the COVID-19 travel restrictions and CDC recommendations:

  • All FLETA assessments scheduled for March through May have been postponed and will be rescheduled at a later date.
  • As information regarding the virus and guidance changes, the FLETA Board and OA will reevaluate any FLETA assessments that are scheduled beyond May. There is a possibility that they may require rescheduling, but we are unable to determine that at this time.
  • The May 13-14, 2020 FLETA Workshop has been postponed.
  • The FLETA Executive Committee is considering options for the April 21-23, 2020 FLETA Board Meeting, and additional information is forthcoming.
  • Training Organizations with upcoming academy/program self-assessments are encouraged to conduct remote self-assessments. Contact your assigned FLETA Program Manager if you have questions for conducting remote self-assessments, have trouble accessing the FLETA Community of Interest on the Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN), and/or looking for examples on how to collect self-assessor feedback.
  • The FLETA OA staff remain available through email and phone, please click here for a listing of staff emails and phone numbers.

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: Administration, Training Staff, Training Development, and Training Delivery. 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.
