  • F.B.I. National Academy.

    I guess this is the best place to post this. If someone has been to the F.B.I. National Academy in the last few years I would lave to ask some questions. Shoot me a P.M.


    Thanks

    Bump on this. Though I'm several years away from even being able to throw my hat in the ring just for consideration for a slot, I specifically have a question about the University of Virginia graduate certificate that can be obtained as part of the NA. If anyone has any insight on this, please let me know.

        Not a fan.
        Being a good street cop is like coming to work in a wet suit and peeing in your pants. It's a nice warm feeling, but you're the only one who knows anything has happened.

            Because it is not an academy. It is more like a daily forum and discussions on how to help each agency. Its more managerial based training for higher ups. Supposed to be well aboce LT's rank but they take sgt and lt. All different agencies from usa and world attend.

              I know all that. It is definitely networking-heavy, though the classes offered do seem quite good. I've never heard anyone speak negatively about it, but it would be nice to hear varying experiences.

                It's exactly what everyone said.. networking and management classes. It's a credential you gotta have on paper if you want to become chief around here. These comments are based on the opinion of a guy I know that went.

                  I know a number of graduates and none of them have a bad word to say about the experience.


                  It is not designed to be a training academy ---------------it is designed to be a graduate school level educational experience. The networking is built into the system and is integral to the program.

                  It is meant to be for the up-and-comers of the agency who plan on being top level administrators

                    Several of our admin have attended and a Lt from my previous department attended. My opinion only, but the FBI has no clue on how to manage a municipal police department nor do municipal police work. They do the big time investigation stuff and do it well. Secondly, it seems to change individuals management style to place blame for everything on the individual officer instead of finding ways to fix the overall issue. I'm sure there are a great deal of benefits from attending, but overall, I've seen a few, not my department per se, come back and develop ways to screw the front line guys with nonsensical policies and absurd projects. I guess I just have an old school mentality.

                      You nailed it. Having served as both Muni and Fed, rest assured there are still us old school types out there.
