Lieutenant Peter Pollack Graduates Prestigious FBI National Academy

Fairfield (NJ) The Fairfield Police Department is proud and honored to announce that Lieutenant Peter Pollack was amongst the two hundred-twenty one law enforcement officers who graduated from the FBI National Academy Program at Quantico, Virginia on March 28, 2014. The 256th Session of the National Academy consisted of men and women from 47 states. Included in the class were members of law enforcement agencies from the District of Columbia, 23 international countries, five military organizations and two federal civilian organizations. FBI Director James Comey was the keynote speaker at the graduation and presented diplomas to the graduates.

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 agencies to serve in executive-level positions.

Training for the program is provided by the FBI Academy instructional staff, special agents, and other staff members holding advanced degrees, many of whom are recognized internationally in their fields of expertise. Since 1972, National Academy students have been able to earn undergraduate and graduate credits from the University of Virginia due to the accreditation by the university of the many courses offered.

A total of 47,254 graduates now represent the FBI National Academy since it was initiated by former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover in July 1935. Of this number, approximately 29,741 are still active in law enforcement work.

“I am extremely proud of Lieutenant Pollack’s accomplishment and his continued dedication to our profession” said Chief Charles Voelker. Lieutenant Pollack has served the citizens of Fairfield for approximately 20 years.
