Uniformed Police Training Program (FLETC)

Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers

The purpose of the UPTP is to provide new officers with the specific knowledge and skills necessary to perform at an entry-level uniformed federal law enforcement position. It provides the basic law enforcement concepts that a new officer should understand and be able to perform upon employment in a federal law enforcement organization. Rather than being agency-specific, the program addresses common knowledge, skills, and abilities that are expected of entry-level uniformed federal law enforcement positions. UPTP provides, on an interagency basis, a program of instruction that fulfills the basic federal law enforcement officer training requirements necessary for responsible and competent job performance. The UPTP is 64 instructional days and consists of 524 hours of instruction. The average number of students per iteration of the program is 48 for the Glynco, GA training delivery point and 24 for Artesia, NM.
