Daytona State assists with FBI national academy training

Daytona State’s School of Emergency Services this month partnered with the FBI National Academy Associates (FBI NAA) Florida Chapter to provide advanced training to more than 135 law enforcement personnel.
The college’s criminal justice staff and faculty coordinated the training modules that were presented during the July 15-18 conference held at the Daytona Beach Shores Resort and Spa. Tim Girard, assistant chair of defensive tactics for Daytona State’s criminal justice training program, also is the Florida area representative of FBI NAA.
The association delegates who participated in the retraining program included representatives of 60 police agencies from around the state, as well as the FBI, the Transportation Safety Administration, Florida Attorney General’s Office, the Jacksonville Aviation Authority and private security firms.
Among the topics covered were identity theft and investigating missing child and abduction cases. William Berger, U.S. marshal for the Middle District of Florida, also was a keynote speaker at the event.
The conference was chaired by South Daytona Police Chief Bill Hall.
The FBI NAA is a non-profit, international organization of nearly 18,000 senior law enforcement professionals. It provides a wide range of leadership and specialized training, as well as an opportunity for professional law enforcement officials to share ideas, techniques and experiences. Its membership is limited to law enforcement leaders who have completed the FBI’s prestigious National Academy Program.
