FLETA Board Grants Reaccreditation to the USMC MCPA BPOC
The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted reaccreditation status to the United States Marine Corps (USMC), Marine Corps Police Academy (MCPA), Basic Police Officers Course (BPOC) at the November 3, 2022, meeting.
The purpose of the BPOC is to provide training in support of the Marine Corps Civilian Law Enforcement Program, a program initiated in 2005 to enhance security and police services for the Marine Corps. The BPOC is designed to create the competencies needed for the student to perform Marine Corps installation law enforcement duties. The BPOC is 60 instructional days and consists of 476 hours of instruction. The average number of students per iteration of the program is 19.
The FLETA Board is the accrediting body for all federal law enforcement training and support programs. To achieve accreditation, training organizations submit to an independent review of their program and/or academy 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, training organizations must submit annual reports in preparation for reaccreditation, which is a new and independent review of the program/academy.
