National Maritime Law Enforcement Academy

The National Maritime Law Enforcement Academy provides education and training for law enforcement  personnel as well as for the critical infrastructure industries located on or near the maritime environment.  Besides improved tactical operations within an agency, this education also covers coordination among applicable agencies at times of catastrophic events exercising the National Incident Management System (NIMS).

The objective of the Academy is to provide law enforcement agencies the best possible maritime training this country has to offer. Our training units are mobile and we bring our training to your agencies.  By coming to you, we save both your agency and the taxpayers significant money.  As a non-profit organization, we are politically neutral and assess the officers, agents, and agencies in a fair and impartial manner.

Many classes presented around the country teach tactics and skills oriented to equipment which officers or agents may never use or have available within their agencies.  Our programs are different as they are uniquely designed to use each agency's specific assets in order to increase the officers’ awareness in the capabilities of those assets, and how best to use them to the officers’ and the agency's advantage.  The key to raising the level of professionalism, proficiency, and officer safety and survival is to customize the training to utilize the actual assets and equipment used by those officers in the field.  This is our method and we do it well.
