EPCSO LIEUTENANT ATTENDS 270th SESSION OF FBI NATIONAL ACADEMY

The National Academy, with the FBI who serves as the host, is considered to be the most elite law enforcement training program in the world. It is estimated that less than 1% of law enforcement professionals are ever granted the opportunity to participate in the highly selective program. Since its establishment, the program has graduated over 50,000 law enforcement professionals who went back to their respective state, local or federal agencies with education and tools to improve the law enforcement profession.

From October 1st – December 15, 2017, Lieutenant Juan Carlos Wittke attended the 270th session of the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia. Lt. Wittke was joined by over 220 law enforcement professionals representing 49 states and 20 countries for this academy. The National Academy consists of three pillars which are academics, physical fitness, and networking. During his time at the Academy Lt. Wittke also completed the rigorous six-mile “Yellow Brick Road” obstacle course with his classmates, earning him the coveted FBINA “Yellow Brick”.   Lt. Wittke joins the other Sheriff’s Office Lieutenants and Sheriff’s Office Command Staff that have attended and graduated from previous sessions.

Congrats!
