The Bryan Police Department would like to recognize Sgt. Shane Bush for recently graduating from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) National Academy hosted in Quantico, Virginia. Two hundred and fifty seven officers from 48 states and 29 other countries graduated this March.
Internationally known for its academic excellence, the National Academy Program, held at the FBI Academy, 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 agency to serve in administrative level positions.
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.
A total of 44,553 graduates now represent the FBI National Academy since it began in July 1935. Of this number, approximately 28,041 are still active in law enforcement work.
Sgt. Bush has been with the police department for 17 years and has held many positions at the department starting on Patrol, then as a K-9 Officer, and later transferred to the Narcotic Task Force. He was promoted to Patrol Sergeant in October of 2002 and was then put in charge of the Directed Deployment Team. He also serves on the Crisis Negotiation Team. He is currently assigned to and supervises the Drug Enforcement Team (DET).
It is considered a privilege to be selected for the academy and quite an accomplishment to gradate the 10 week program. The training he received will help him to better serve the community and his fellow officers.
