Following a vision and the leadership of Admiral Owen Siler, a former U.S. Coast Guard Commandant, the National Maritime Law Enforcement Academy (NMLEA) was established in 2000 to fill a capabilities gap that continues to effect law enforcement and emergency response operations on the water all across America. The NMLEA (and the International Maritime Law Enforcement Academy or IMLEA) provides education, training, exercises, consultation and resources for law enforcement personnel, emergency responders and public safety professionals, as well as for the critical infrastructure industries located on or near the maritime environment.
