The FBI National Academy was started in the 1935 to enhance law enforcement standards in America at the State and Local level.  It has evolved into a rigorous 10 week program for active U.S. law enforcement personnel and international law enforcement personnel.  The program is designed to raise law enforcement standards, promote professionalism, increase knowledge, and foster cooperation worldwide.

Only 2% of law enforcement executives ever receive the honor of attending the coveted training. Executive law enforcement personnel are hand selected to attend and Wyoming only receives one slot per year.

The program requires extensive physical fitness training, as well as academic training, and will conclude with the world renowned run of the Yellow Brick Road Course designed by the U.S. Marine Corp.

Sgt. Weber already holds a Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice and has selected to study 21st century leadership techniques at the graduate student level.  She will receive 23 additional college credits from the University of Virginia for her attendance at FBINA.

Current local law enforcement officers who have previously attended a secession of the FBINA include Sheriff Jim Whalen and Chief Todd Smith.
