(Springfield’s News Talk 104.1) – Last week, Captain Fred Beck was honored as a graduate of the 290th session of the FBI National Academy.

Nationally, less than one percent of law enforcement officers are selected to attend the program.

Beck has been in law enforcement for 27 years including 23 years with the Springfield Police Department and currently serves as the Commander of the Criminal Investigations Division.

Beck previously served in the Uniform Operations Bureau and as the director of the Training Academy as well as several other assignments.

Internationally known for its academic excellence since it was established in 1935, the FBI National Academy offers 10 weeks of advanced leadership, communication, investigative, and fitness training.

Participants must have proven records as professionals within their agencies. On average, these officers have 21 years of law enforcement experience and usually return to their agencies to serve in executive-level positions.

The 290th session included 201 law enforcement officers from 46 states and the District of Columbia as well as members of law enforcement agencies from 24 countries, five military organizations, and six federal civilian organizations.
