WELCOME to the Macon County Law Enforcement Training Center (MCLETC) in Decatur, Illinois.

The concept of building a premier training facility in Central Illinois began in the summer of 2016. Through the initiative and generosity of the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, this concept became a reality. The MCLETC opened it’s doors on September 20, 2017, and started its first training course on October 2, 2017.

The MCLETC is a state certified Basic Law Enforcement and Basic Corrections training academy. Our philosophy is geared towards a suitable learning environment, while maintaining a disciplinary atmosphere. Recruits/Cadets will be challenged inside and outside the classroom. We demand commitment, self-motivation, and effort. This can be summed up in our core values: Public Service, Respect, Integrity, Discipline and Excellence. We take P.R.I.D.E. in training professionals through education and practical application. The MCLETC’s mission is to prepare you to be the best law enforcement and/or correctional officer possible.
