Police officer attends national academy

August 18, 2004

Valdosta - A South Georgia police officer takes part in top notch law enforcement training.

Sergeant Bernard Robinson recently represented the Valdosta Police Department at the National F.B.I. Academy in Virginia. He spent four months taking part in intense firearms, management, and physical training.

Only six officers from Georgia were selected to go. "When the chief told me about it, I felt like it was a good opportunity," said Robinson. "They have outstanding courses in management and operations, it was just a great learning experience and something that I just could not pass up."

Only two other officers from the Valdosta Police Department have attended the academy. The department hopes to send more soon.
