Major Beth Andreski will head to Quantico, Virginia in 2020 as a member of the FBI National Academy.
The National Academy is a professional course of study for nominated U.S. and international law enforcement professionals who demonstrate strong leadership qualities and the highest level of expertise in their field. The competitive ten-week program provides coursework in intelligence theory, terrorism and terrorist mindsets, management science, law, behavioral science, law enforcement communication, and forensic science. It serves to improve the administration of justice in police departments and agencies domestically and abroad while raising law enforcement standards, knowledge, and cooperation worldwide.
Approximately 220 officers take undergraduate and/or graduate courses at the FBI campus in Quantico, Virginia and 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.
The Academy began July 29, 1935, and 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.
Major Andreski’s term will begin in 2020.
Congratulations Major Andreski on this huge accomplishment!
