The terror attacks ten years ago helped shape the Brunswick area as one of its economic engines expanded. The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center is based in the coastal city and trains 20,000 federal officers in 90 agencies each year. That's compared to 16,000 officers before the attacks.
The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center says it will fill 48 positions in Glynn County by moving some human resources operations there from Washington, D.C. The training center said Monday the Department of Homeland Security, which includes FLETC, has folded its main human resources department into the training center's division to consolidate operations and reduce costs by $1.5 million this year.
