“Building Unity in the Community” -- Richland County Sheriff's Department Lieutenant Graduates from FBI National Academy
Tuesday, June 14, 2011

RICHLAND COUNTY, SC - “Building Unity in the Community” -- Richland County Sheriff's Department Lieutenant Graduates from FBI National Academy; Achieves Personal Goal by Sheriff Leon Lott.

As your Sheriff, I am proud of how members of the Richland County Sheriff's Department reach beyond their comfort levels to achieve both professional and personal goals.

I am pleased to announce Lieutenant Anna Cavanagh of our Crime Scene Unit is the latest graduate from the Federal Bureau Investigations National Academy Program at Quantico, Virginia. She is one of 246 law enforcement officers, from 48 states and 22 countries, which graduated in the 245th Session. Lt. Cavanagh is the third female deputy from the Richland County Sheriff’s Department to graduate from the FBI NA.

Lt. Cavanagh received her diploma during a graduation ceremony held June 10, 2011 in Quantico, Virginia. I am proud to also be a graduate of the FBI National Academy Program, and the internationally recognized training for leaders and executives will not only aid Lt. Cavanagh in her career but will help the Richland County Sheriff's Department continue to produce professional law enforcement officers that will undoubtedly serve the citizens of Richland County.

"It was a personal challenge and honor to represent the Richland County Sheriff's Department," says Lt. Cavanagh. "It was great experience to learn how other agencies from all over the world do things."

The rigorous and complex training, both physically and academically, will help Lt. Cavanagh personally and professionally. Her training included 10 weeks of course work, weekly physical fitness testing which culminated with a 6.2 mile obstacle course and a 34 mile swim challenge. The National Academy Program is designed to provide management and leadership training that will be able to apply in her role at the Richland County Sheriff's Department.

"Completing the Academy gave me several new goals to obtain personally and professionally. I have gained knowledge on new program opportunities and ways to build on what we already do at the Richland County Sheriff's Department," says Lt. Cavanagh.

As one of the department’s leaders, Lt. Cavanagh is an example to the community and to other officers, of what can be accomplished when high personal goals are set and one is committed to meeting and even exceeding those goals. I am extremely proud of Lt. Cavanagh's accomplishment and I know she will display all the leadership skills that have been embedded in her at the FBI National Academy.
