FBI NATIONAL ACADEMY

The FBI National Academy is considered the most prestigious law enforcement school available. The National Academy has long been a vital element in the continuing improvement of law enforcement standards, knowledge, and cooperation throughout the world. The FBI National Academy provides a wide range of leadership and specialized training, as well as an opportunity for professional law enforcement officers to share ideas, techniques, and experiences. Attendees are invited after being nominated by their department. Once nominated, the Officers undergo an extensive background check and interview process. Admission to the FBI National Academy is very limited: only 1/2 of 1 percent of all law enforcement in the world are invited by the Director of the FBI to attend the academy. Law Enforcement officers from around the world submit to concentrated studies and demanding physical training for ten weeks. Once the officers graduate from the National Academy, they are encouraged to join the FBI National Academy Associates located in their State or region. The Dover Police Department is extremely fortunate and proud to have 24 officers graduate from the FBI National Academy to this date.
