Georgia DNR Law Enforcement Deemed Top Agency By FBI National Academy
SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. –-(AmmoLand.com)- The Georgia Chapter of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s National Academy Associates (FBINAA) recently presented the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Law Enforcement Section with the Phyllis Goodwin Agency of the Year Award. The annual award, presented at the FBINAA’s summer conference in July, recognizes agencies that excel in support of the FBINAA Georgia Chapter.
As leaders in natural resources law enforcement, Georgia DNR’s Law Enforcement personnel who have graduated from the FBI National Academy serve as active members of the FBINAA’s Georgia Chapter.
“The involvement our supervisory officers have with the Georgia Chapter of the FBINAA has undoubtedly positively affected our agency and its operations,” said Lt. Col. Jeff Weaver of the Georgia DNR Law Enforcement and graduate of the 226th session. “We are honored to receive this recognition.”
Capt. Eddie Henderson of the Georgia DNR and graduate of the 211th session currently serves on the executive board for the Georgia Chapter of the FBINAA as First Vice President. Department personnel also have served on membership, finance and conference committees and provided assistance for the chapter’s Web site redesign initiative.
Georgia DNR officers have benefited from the education and training received from the National Academy. Over the years, practices learned through the academy have been incorporated into agency procedures.
Some examples include the requirement of supervisory training for front line supervisors, the offer of risk management training and workplace issue management to staff and command officers and the opportunity for ethics and professionalism training.
The year 2011 will mark a century of service to the state of Georgia by the DNR’s Law Enforcement agency. As the first and longest-serving state law enforcement agency, DNR is committed to understanding and meeting the law enforcement needs of Georgia’s citizens.
Continued involvement with the FBINAA and the training offered will aid DNR in its efforts to remain at the forefront of the state’s law enforcement leadership.
The Phyllis Goodwin Agency of the Year Award was named after Goodwin, the FBINAA police training tech who effectively served members of the academy for nearly 38 years.
