The reasons for the Postal Service withdrawal from participation in the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center were evaluated.

Postal Service security police could receive essentially the same training at the Center which they now receive if the program included 3 to 4 days of specialized postal training. Although training at the Center would have economic advantages, the Postal Service maintains that disadvantages of transferring the first 8 weeks of basic inspector training, and added costs to the Department of the Treasury, outweigh the advantages. GAO concluded that some participation would be feasible but transfer of the initial basic inspector training would not be justified.
