FLETA Online Town Hall, January 21, 2021

For Immediate Release
Joe Collins Discusses 2020 Manual

Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Office of Accreditation (OA) Executive Director Joseph M. Collins delivered an online town hall. Over 129 participants from the FLETA Board and community attended the town hall. Mr. Collins discussed the recent publication of the FLETA Procedures and Standards Manual 2020 Edition and answered questions from attendees.

Training organizations have six months to transition to the new standards.

Additionally, the OA has updated all existing forms to support new and revised standards. The FLETA Procedures and Standards Manual 2020 Edition and the standards crosswalk are available on the website and the FLETA Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN) site. Updated forms are available within the FLETA HSIN or upon request by contacting the OA.

The FLETA Office of Accreditation is available to answer any questions regarding the FLETA Procedures and Standards Manual 2020 Edition.

The OA will deliver five workshops, open to all. The upcoming dates (all beginning at 2 p.m. EST) are:

  • January 25th – Standards Introduction & Program Standards Section 1
