Open Space Master Plan


Federal Law Enforcement Training Center Glynco, Georgia

A bureau of the Department of Homeland Security, The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center at Glynco, Georgia is the nation’s leading organization for interagency training of law enforcement personnel from all 50 states and U.S. territories. There are presently 62 Federal agencies participating in training at the 3,500 acre campus, with an annual attendance of 25,000 students in programs ranging from 3 weeks to 3 months duration. Based on client input, a priority of issues was assembled to form the basis of the open space master plan. One important objective in the development of the master plan was the establishment of a “walking campus.” The initial study identified the elements which enhanced pedestrian activity within the 75-acre core. The study also pinpointed facility operations, including parking, service vehicle access and maintenance. The study was then expanded to include the entire campus.
