Monday, June 11, 2018

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office sent Major James Amrich to the FBI National Academy and he recently graduated on June 8, 2018. Sheriff Mike Scott, Undersheriff Carmine Marceno and several others from our agency have graduated from this globally acclaimed academy as well.

Two hundred and thirty-one law enforcement officers graduated alongside Major Amrich at Quantico, Virginia. The training received at this academy enhances the Lee County Sheriff’s Office overall mission as well as enriches the knowledge of the participants. This worldwide known, very selective program, is described below.

This was the 272nd Session of the National Academy and it consisted of men and women from 48 states. Included in the class were members of law enforcement agencies from the District of Columbia, 25 international countries, and seven federal organizations.

The National Academy Program, held at the FBI Academy, is internationally known for its academic excellence. It offers 10 weeks of advanced communication, leadership, and fitness training for selected officers having proven records as professionals within their agencies. These officers, on average, have 21 years of law enforcement experiences and usually return to their agencies to serve in executive-level positions.

Training for the program is provided by the FBI Academy instructional staff, Special Agents, and other staff members holding advanced degrees, many of who are recognized internationally in their fields of expertise. A total of 51,042 graduates now represent the alumni of the FBI National Academy since it began in 1935.

“We are very proud of his accomplishments and honored to have him be an integral part of our team,” says Undersheriff Carmine Marceno.
