By Wayne Ivey, Brevard County Sheriff // July 27, 2015
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – I would like to personally thank the FBI National Academy Associates for inviting me to provide the inspirational message for the annual FBI National Academy Association’s International Training Conference hosted in Seattle, Washington.
As a graduate of Session 237 at the National Academy I was asked to address the conference with an inspirational message concerning the honor of serving our citizens as a Law Enforcement Officer as well as the importance of community partnerships.
In addition to the Inspirational Message that was delivered to over 800 graduates who were in attendance I also had the opportunity to present our “Time To Be A Parent Again Program” as a best-practice training session to attendees from all over the world.
The FBINAA is recognized globally among government and law enforcement agencies as one of the premier providers of law enforcement expertise, leadership development, training, education, and information.
The FBINAA trademark is leadership, teamwork, and the courage of members to anticipate and effectively respond to community, national, and global law enforcement needs, ensuring the safety of the citizens we serve. Over 170 countries have FBINAA Association graduates.
The FBI National Academy is a 10 week professional development course for National and International Law Enforcement leaders.
It serves to improve the administration of justice in sheriffs’ offices, police departments and law enforcement agencies worldwide and to raise standards, knowledge, and cooperation.
Its mission is to support, promote, and enhance the personal and professional development of law enforcement leaders by preparing them for the complex, dynamic, and contemporary challenges through innovation, facilitating education and research, and forging effective partnerships.
Academy Graduates are leaders and managers of state, local, county, tribal police, military, federal, and international law enforcement agencies.
Participation is by invitation only, through a nomination process.
Participants are drawn from every U.S. state and territory and from international partner nations. Sessions of approximately 220 officers take undergraduate and/or graduate courses at the FBI campus in Quantico, Virginia, offered by the University of Virginia. Classes are offered in the following areas: law, behavioral science, forensic science, understanding terrorism/terrorist mindsets, leadership, communication, and health/fitness.
Officers participate in a wide range of leadership and specialized training, where they share ideas, techniques, and experiences with each other, creating lifelong partnerships that transcend state and national borders.
Our agency has a number of FBINAA Graduates who include:
Chief Deputy Doug Waller Session, # 204
Chief Mike Lewis Session, # 225 Commander Alan Moros Session, # 234 Commander Greg Purden Session, # 244 Major John Mellick Session, # 259
Manager Joe Hellebrand Session, # 197
It was truly an honor to speak to the world’s Law Enforcement leaders on topics that I am passionately committed.
This was an incredible opportunity to share our agency’s vision and local successes about partnering with our citizens to combat crime in our community.
