DLA Police Training

The DLA Police is dedicated to providing our military installations with the best possible quality of officer. We at DLA recognize that one of the most important ways to accomplish this task is through dedicated, consistent, and continual training. Our officers receive training through a variety of programs. The bulk of this training is conducted through the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) in Glynco, GA, and the Army Civilian Police Academy at Fortt Leonard Wood, MO.

Recruit officers begin training immediately while receiving full pay and benefits.

 New Officer Orientation and Training: All new officers participate in an orientation program before being assigned to full-time post and patrol duties. Officers spend the first two weeks in orientation and initial training.

This program includes familiarization with DLA, review and recognition of police rules, regulations, policies and procedures, report forms, reporting requirements, community services and interaction, use of force continuum, safe and effective use of firearms, as well as patrol function basics.

Within the first year, officers will begin 11 weeks of intensive training in the Uniformed Police Training Program (UPTP) provided by the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC), or a 9-week course at the Army Civilian Police Academy.

Field Training and In-Service Training: After graduation from FLETC, officers will continue to develop skills through additional on-the-job training and continual “in-service” training.
