International Law Enforcement Academies
Since 1995, The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) has participated in the International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA) Program. Over the years, academies have been established in Hungary, Thailand, Botswana, and El Salvador.
ITT serves as liaison and coordinates FLETC’s activities and participation at each of the ILEAs, providing academic, program, and operational support.
Currently, aside from providing instructors for each ILEA’s core and specialized programs, FLETC also has an assigned Director at ILEA San Salvador and ILEA Gaborone. These Directors are responsible for the facility and management of all academic areas of the academy.
The objectives of ILEA-Bangkok are to support criminal justice institution-building in Asia, with an emphasis on rule of law, and strengthening partnerships and cooperation amongst the law enforcement communities of Asia. Our training addresses problems such as narcotics, terrorism and other transnational crimes, and will promote the use of global crime-fighting tools such as mutual legal assistance and extradition. ILEA’s varied Specialised Courses and the Senior Criminal Justice Executive Programmes will discuss specific topics of interest and significance to Asia.
The United States and the Government of Hungary have cooperated to create the International Law Enforcement Academy in Budapest, Hungary. Located on the "Buda" side of the city, the Academy offers training opportunities for up to 130 students at one time. In addition to topical seminars and courses, an International Law Enforcement Academy Program has been established similar to the domestic FBI National Academy Program in the United States, but is conducted with simultaneous translation to eliminate the requirement for students to speak English.
On 24 July 2000, in view of their long standing and close cooperation in law enforcement and their mutual interest in combating transnational crime, the United States and Botswana governments entered into an agreement for establishing an International Law Enforcement Academy that would provide training for middle managers from eligible countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
