How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*For 26 years, the Committee has provided critical and timely advice to the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) on state, local, campus, and tribal training. Discussions and information exchanged during meetings are instrumental in ensuring that the training developed and offered by the FLETC's Office of State and Local Training is of exceptional quality, responds to the unique and specialized needs of law enforcement officers, and is timely. Comments, questions, and suggestions from the members concerning concepts for training, training delivery, and/or policy/operational modifications are considered by FLETC officials during the decision-making process. In areas of special concern, subcommittees are formed, which report back to the primary Committee. Examples include identifying training gaps in law enforcement and increasing the availability of affordable, needs-based training to rural law enforcement agencies and other emergency responders.
How is membership balanced?*The Committee is made up of representatives of federal agencies that work closely with state, local, campus, and tribal law enforcement agencies; representatives from state, local, campus, and tribal law enforcement, as well as their national organizations; and academia. Each individual's function is to represent the interests of his or her discipline/association during the deliberation and advisory activities of the Committee, ensuring that all the major elements of the law enforcement community have input prior to decisions being made.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Committee meets twice annually. In FY10, the FLETC plans to incorporate at least one additional meeting to increase the timeliness of advice, and utilization of web and/or teleconferencing for one or more of these meetings is being researched to reduce costs. The Advisory Committee takes an active role in advising the FLETC Director and the Deputy Assistant Director of the Office of State and Local Training on matters including training policy, training needs, training curriculum, course content and evaluation, and student admission and performance. Due to the significant law enforcement experience of the Committee members, their advice enhances the mission of the FLETC and is relevant in ensuring the delivery of top-quality training programs, particularly to rural state, local, campus, and tribal law enforcement officers and first responders.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The Committee is unique in that there is no existing forum comprising this particular assemblage. The state, local, campus, and tribal members represent international and national law enforcement associations and organizations which are leaders in the law enforcement arena, and federal members from Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Justice (DOJ) agencies who have a vested interest in law enforcement training. DHS and DOJ share leadership of this committee through its co-chairs. The advice and information exchange is critical to identifying training gaps for state, local, campus, and tribal officers; maximizing resources via partnerships to increase training capacity and promoting those partnerships to supplement, not duplicate, existing training. The advice provided is integral for the rural law enforcement community and emergency responders in the DHS/FLETC's implementation of the Rural Policing Institute authorized by Public Law 110-53.

Outcome CommentImproved law enforcement training and delivery methods to state, local, campus, and tribal law enforcement agencies including rural), thus reducing their training costs; identification of relevant training topics and outreach strategies; and increasing law enforcment participants' level of expertise. Advice provided by the SALTAC aligns directly with the strategic plan.Number Of Grants Recommended0
Cost Savings*Unable to DetermineDollar Value Of Grants Recommended$0.00
Cost Savings CommentCosts are intangible. State, local, campus, and tribal agencies (particularly rural agencies) realize a significant cost savings since the FLETC is funded to provide training tuition-free to agencies who can least afford it (e.g, rural agencies). The SALTAC's valuable advice has improved the efficiency of training delivery and operational processes, increased capacity of training programs, and expanded outreach. The SALTAC is working diligently to provide timely advice on implementing the congressionally mandated Rural Policing Institute.Grants Review CommentNA
