Program Overview

The primary mission of the NPS-LETC is to coordinate the basic training of Law Enforcement Rangers and Special Agents, including a Field Training and Evaluation Program for Law Enforcement Rangers.

The NPS-LETC also coordinates Advanced Law Enforcement Training for the NPS, and provides support to the field by managing a variety of programs.
In addition, NPS-LETC works in partnership with the NPS cooperative law enforcement training programs (commonly referred to as “seasonal ranger academies”) at colleges and universities throughout the U.S.
