A Corinth Police Department official is one of two law enforcement officers in the state selected to attend the prestigious FBI National Academy in Quantico, Va.
Detective Capt. Dell Green will soon participate in the 10-week training, which includes college-level courses and a physical fitness program.
Green said he is “very humbled” to be selected for the program. He applied for the national academy about two years ago at the recommendation of Police Chief Ralph Dance.
The academy draws law enforcement from throughout the world and helps prepare them for leadership roles.
Green will have the opportunity to take part in courses such as crisis negotiation and behavioral science.
Taking part in the academy is a “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity, Green said. The training will be of value in his day-to-day duties at the Corinth Police Department, he noted.
The “high-level” training Green receives at the national academy will be a great benefit for the police department and basically free of charge, Chief Dance noted.
