Sheriff Going To FBI Academy

March 27, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments

Teton County Sheriff Jim Whalen is headed for the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia next month for ten weeks of training in academics, physical conditioning and professional networking.  Whalen says he is humbled by the opportunity since participation in the program is highly selective.  He says in 1962, the academy was opened to foreign law enforcement officials, and to be accepted in such a world arena, it is very prestigious to be one of the ones selected to go. Whalen says the training is executive level for law enforcement and will help him become more up-to-date on crime trends across the country and management styles that are most effective for guiding police organizations.  However, he also looks forward to making contact with other law-enforcement leaders nationwide.  Whalen says the experience offers the opportunity to “rub elbows” with people who may be going through the same things he is seeing here or may have found their own solutions to the situations as they previously faced them.  Says Whalen, “You’re able to glean so much information and so much knowledge merely by having that professional network.” Two other members of the sheriff’s office have already attended the National Academy, Undersheriff Bob Gilliam and Lieutenant Slade Ross.
