The FBI Academy Experience with Lt. Sean Frank – Wednesday, September 13 @ 6:30pm

Lt. Sean Frank, from the Shaler Township Police Department, will discuss his experience while attending the 268 Session of the FBI National Academy from April 3rd to June 7th 2017. The 10-week course is comprised of both academic and physical training. The Academy began July 29, 1935. It was created in response to a 1930 study by the Wickersham Commission that recommended the standardization and professionalization of law enforcement departments across the U.S. through centralized training. With strong support from the International Association of Chiefs of Police and with the authority of Congress and the Department of Justice, the “FBI Police Training School” was born. Courses at that time included scientific aids in crime detection, preparation of reports, criminal investigation techniques, and administration and organization. With today’s technology advancements, the FBINA offers courses in cybercrime, intelligence theory, and managing the police department image and media relations. Lt. Frank says, “The networking with over 200 law enforcement executives throughout the world is what sets the FBINA experience above most other law enforcement leadership training.”
