FLETA Concludes 400th FLETA Assessment

For Immediate Release

The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation Board

Achieves Milestone by Completing 400th Assessment


July 22, 2022 – The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board concluded the 400th FLETA assessment at the United States Marine Corps Police Academy in Fort Leonard Wood, MO. The three-day assessment included a comprehensive review of the civilian Basic Police Officers Course including all policies and evidence to demonstrate continued compliance with the FLETA Standards. The team included a team leader and two assessors.

“The FLETA Board would like to recognize all the volunteers who serve as team leaders and assessors.” stated James Ward, FLETA Board Chairperson. “Team leaders and assessors are the backbone of FLETA, without them, this process would not exist, and for that, we are very grateful and appreciative of the excellent work they have done and continue to do for hundreds of assessments.”

“We want to thank all the training organizations who actively participate in the FLETA process by providing personnel to serve as assessors,” stated Joe Collins, Executive Director, FLETA Office of Accreditation. “The support provided by the training organizations involved in the FLETA process have been crucial in achieving this milestone.”

Training organizations voluntarily submit to the FLETA process for each program or academy seeking accreditation/reaccreditation. FLETA is a cyclical process that includes comparing the training organization’s processes against the FLETA Standards; identifying and making improvements; conducting a self-assessment by internal/external volunteers before the official FLETA assessment; submitting to an assessment by a team of qualified FLETA assessors; submitting to a review by a FLETA Board Review Committee; and a final review by the full FLETA Board for a determination of accreditation. If the FLETA process identifies deficiencies, the training organization is required to develop a corrective action plan that the FLETA Board monitors for completion to ensure the program or academy meets the standards. Reaccreditation occurs every five years and is a fresh and independent review to ensure that the academy or program continues to meet the FLETA Standards.
