Located just outside of Washington, D.C., the James J. Rowley Training Center (JJRTC) is comprised of almost 500 acres of land, six miles of roadway and 31 buildings. The protective, investigative, specialized tactical and executive/managerial training conducted at JJRTC is unique among federal law enforcement instructional entities.

The Secret Service provides a wide range of courses utilized by its personnel throughout their careers. The core curriculum provided by JJRTC is designed for special agents, Uniformed Division officers, special officers and physical security specialists. In a single year, hundreds of training recruits undergo extensive training in firearms marksmanship, use-of-force/control tactics, emergency medical techniques, financial crimes detection, physical/site/event protection and water survival training. At the other end of the professional spectrum, scores of veteran law enforcement, executive/managerial, administrative and technical personnel are offered comprehensive curriculum of specialized and technology-based training courses throughout their careers.

Advanced computer-driven methodologies enable JJRTC to reach beyond its Washington, D.C. metropolitan facilities to provide "on-site" educational experiences to personnel throughout the Secret Service's domestic and international field offices. The Secret Service supports its valued law enforcement partners from across the country by providing protective security, financial crimes, specialized tactical and weapons training to other federal, state and local law enforcement personnel.
