Park Ranger Law Enforcement Academy

Temple’s PRLEA, formerly the Seasonal Law Enforcement Training Program or SLETP,  is a full-time, 19-week program consisting of more than 700 hours of professional instruction designed to prepare and enable students to obtain employment with the National Park Service as a seasonal law enforcement ranger.

The curriculum places particular emphasis on visitor and resource protection, federal law and procedure, authority and jurisdiction, natural and cultural resource management, officer safety and survival skills, and physical conditioning.

Upon successful completion of the program, students are awarded a certificate of completion from the Temple University Park Ranger Law Enforcement Academy (PRLEA) and the National Park Service-Law Enforcement Training Center (LETC). A public celebration that recognizes the significance of their achievement includes graduation and an awards ceremony for distinguished achievement in academics, marksmanship, driving, and physical fitness.
