One hundred and ninety-nine law enforcement officers graduated on Sept. 14, 2023 from the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia. The 287th session of the National Academy consisted of men and women from 46 states and the District of Columbia, one of which is Kaysville’s own Chief Solomon Oberg.
Internationally known for its academic excellence, the National Academy offers 10 weeks of advanced communication, leadership, and fitness training. Participants must have proven records as professionals within their agencies to attend. On average, these officers have 21 years of law enforcement experience and usually return to their agencies to serve in executive-level positions.
A total of 54,565 graduates have completed the FBI National Academy since it began in 1935.
Police Officers Jacob Gobles and Blake Garrison were sworn in at the Dec. 7, 2023 City Council Meeting.
Sgt. Jeremy Owens was recently recognized for his completion of the Administrative Officers Course from the Southern Police Institute (SPI) at University of Louisville. Owens completed this rigorous 12-week course and made huge sacrifices being away from his family to attend this training. “We are so proud of him and his dedication to the community.” A KPD Facebook post said. “We are excited for the knowledge he brings back with him.”
