Captain Todd Smith Graduates FBI Academy
On Friday, December the 11th, 2009 Captain Todd Smith graduated from the FBI National Academy program at Quantico, Virginia. Captain Smith has served with the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office for over 24 years. He is currently Captain of Investigative Services.
The 239th Session of the FBI National Academy was comprised of 267 law enforcement officers from 49 states, 27 international countries, all branches of the U.S. military organizations and Federal civilian organizations. Internationally known for its academic excellence, the National Academy Program offers 10 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.
Leaders and managers of state and local police, sheriffs' departments, military police organizations, and federal law enforcement agencies are selected to participate in the 10 week course. Participation is by invitation only, through a nomination process. Participants are drawn from every state in the union, from U.S. territories, and from over 150 foreign nations. More than 41,000 graduates now represent the FBI National Academy since it began in July, 1935.
Congratulations on such an honorary achievement!
