Deputy Chief Anthony Manna(photo on right) graduated from the FBI National Academy along with two hundred and seventy-two other law enforcement officers on September 17, 2010 in Quantico, VA. The 242nd Session of the National Academy consisted of men and women from 49 states, the District of Columbia, 26 international countries, five military organizations, and four Federal civilian organizations.
Internationally known for its academic excellence, the National Academy Program, held at the FBI Academy, offers 11 weeks of advanced investigative, management, and fitness training for selected officers having proven records as professionals within their agencies. On average, these officers have 19 years of law enforcement experience and usually return to their agencies to serve in executive-level positions. FBI Director Robert S. Mueller, III, was the principal speaker at the graduation ceremony.
Training for the program is provided by FBI Academy instructional staff, Special Agents, and other staff members holding advanced degrees, many of whom are recognized internationally in their fields of expertise.
Since 1972, National Academy students have been able to earn undergraduate and graduate credits from the University of Virginia due to the accreditation by the university of the many courses offered.
Less than 1/2 of 1% of law enforcement officers in the United States are afforded the opportunity to attend the National Academy program. A total of 37,740 graduates now represent the FBI National Academy since it began in 1935. Of this number, approximately 22,667 are still active in law enforcement work.
