Shreck was released by Kent after two seasons at Canterbury but Leicestershire were keen to add some experience to their young attack now that Matthew Hoggard has retired.
"I'm looking forward to a new challenge at Leicestershire," said Shreck, 36. "The opportunity to play a major role in the bowling attack and lend my experience to an exciting young squad is something that appeals to me and I can't wait to play a part in helping the club move forward."
West Indies batsman Sarwan is returning as overseas player, having first played for the club in 2012.
Shreck - who has been given a one-year deal - and Sarwan are added to a squad which has been bolstered by the young duo of Ben Raine and Rob Sayer.
Leicestershire director of cricket Phil Whitticase said: "It is great to have Charlie on board, he has been a consistent performer over the years and has lots to offer us. He is just the bowler we have been looking for in terms of quality and experience.
"We are also delighted to have Ronnie (Sarwan) back, they are the two experienced players we have been looking for. It's also good to have Ben and Rob with us, it's all positive news for the club."
