The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted accreditation status to the United States Mint Police, Field Training Program at the November 5, 2020 meeting.
The purpose of the Field Training Program is to establish an effective, efficient and uniformed field training program, which achieves national training standards for all police officers while incorporating the unique operations at each of the six United States Mint facilities. Teaching environments include classrooms, mat rooms, and firearm ranges. The Field Training Program is 10 instructional days and consists of 80 hours of instruction for Phase 1. Phase 2 is on the job training. The average number of students per iteration of the program is one to two per field site per quarter.
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 Academy/Program 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.
