COLUMBIA, SC - Columbia Police Chief Randy Scott proudly announces that Deputy Chief Ruben Santiago has successfully completed the 252th Session of the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia.

Participation in the FBINA is through a nomination process and by invitation only.

Deputy Chief Santiago joins the less than 1/10th of 1% of law enforcement officers in the U.S. to attend this prestigious program.

Internationally known for its academic excellence, the FBINA program offers 10 weeks of advanced investigative, management, and fitness training for selected officers having proven records as professionals with their agencies.

Participants who are drawn from all 50-states and more than 150 foreign countries take undergraduate and/or graduate college courses in the following areas:

* Law * Behavioral Science * Forensic Science

* Anti-Terrorism * Leadership Development * Communication

Chief Randy Scott says, “Competition for slots at the Academy is very demanding. Deputy Chief Santiago took on the challenge and never gave up. He worked hard for this Department and has represented us very well. This experience not only benefits him; it benefits CPD and the citizens it serves.”

Deputy Chief Santiago says, “Attending the National Academy was a tremendous undertaking and sacrifice for my loved ones back home. I am thankful for their support during this once-in-a-lifetime experience. I have honed my law enforcement skills at Quantico and can now apply that knowledge in Columbia.”

Following graduation, each officer has the opportunity to join the FBI National Academy Associates, a dynamic organization of more than 15,000 law enforcement professionals who actively work to continue developing higher levels of competency, cooperation, and integrity across the law enforcement community.

Additional CPD Officers have graduated from the FBINA including Chief Scott, Captain Al Eargle, and Lt. Chris White.
