The Maritime Law Enforcement Academy (MLEA) will continue to be the premier provider for all Federal Maritime Law Enforcement Training.


MLEA will prepare and support personnel in the execution of the Coast Guard’s Maritime Security and Safety mission areas. We will ensure that all training delivered is relevant and aligned to Commandant policies and standards. Additionally, we will deliver training to our international and interagency partners to develop and foster closer law enforcement and security relations around the world.


Be responsive, relevant, and maintain training system integrity while providing a positive work environment that allows one to develop and grow their professional and personal skills.
