RBC I The National Park Service (NPS) Law Enforcement Training Center’s Seasonal Law Enforcement Training Program (SLETP) had its formal federal law enforcement training accreditation assessment in late July. On Nov. 16, 2011, the NPS SLETP was awarded its accreditation certificate in Annapolis, Md., at the FLETA Award Reception, along with several other federal law enforcement agencies (United States Marshal Service, Customs and Border Patrol and  United States Coast Guard, to name a few) seeking various program accreditations.
Colorado Northwestern Community College SLETP lead instructor Chris Congemi sent in this NPS update to let it be known that CNCC is one of nine academies in the nation that is FLETA accredited to instruct the NPS SLETP, which is approved by the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) in Glynco, Ga., and the National Park Service.
The seasonal law enforcement accreditation has resulted in the standardization of the curriculum taught at the seasonal NPS academies. The partner academies participating in the formal accreditation assessment were Colorado Northwestern Community College, Southwestern Community College in North Carolina, Skagit Valley Community College in Washington, Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania, Hocking College in Pennsylvania, Vermillion Community College in Minnesota, Northern Arizona University in Arizona, Unity College in Maine and Temple University in Pennsylvania.
