On Oct. 4, 2016, the U.S. Air Force Special Investigations Academy kicked off its Self-Assessment in pursuit of their third re-accreditation from the Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation Board. 


Members from the law enforcement assessor community (Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms; U.S. Marshal Service; Federal Law Enforcement Training Center New Mexico; and FLETC Glynco) volunteered to conduct the three-day self-assessment.


The assessors’ exhaustive review covered academy administration, curriculum and processes to establish evidence for compliance with existing guidance.


This review process occurs every five years when partner organizations of FLETC seek accreditation or re-accreditation through FLETA. The assessment ensures that the academy is meeting the objectives and requirements provided by the Department of Defense, Air Force and the Office of Special Investigations.


Dave Bynum, Chief of the Training Management Division, coordinated the self-assessment as part of his division’s responsibilities to oversee accreditation. 


Col. Garry Little, USAFSIA Commander, welcomed the group and expressed his appreciation for volunteering to assist USAFSIA in achieving and maintaining academic excellence.  He emphasized the importance of FLETA and the relationship between law enforcement agencies in the pursuit of a common goal.


The formal FLETA Assessment is Dec. 6-8 and this self-assessment is an integral part of that preparation.  For more information on FLETA accreditation visit
