Pinehurst Police Chief Earl Phipps announced Thursday that Lieutenant Ken Hall has graduated from the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) National Academy.
Lt. Hall was among the two hundred and fifty-six law enforcement officers who graduated from the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia on September 13, 2019.
The 277th session of the National Academy consisted of men and women from 50 states and the District of Columbia. The class included members of law enforcement agencies from 34 countries, five military organizations, and nine federal civilian organizations.
“As a previous graduate of the National Academy, I am extremely proud to have a new graduate among the ranks of the Pinehurst Police Department,” said Chief Phipps. “Lieutenant Ken Hall’s time spent training in Quantico on the latest advanced policing techniques and equipment is going to reap benefits for our Village’s safety for years to come. Ken has also learned the latest best practices from his peers while networking with law enforcement leaders from all around the world.
“This training and experience brings a new, revitalized network of contacts and crime-fighting ability back into our department. Armed with this new knowledge and experience, Ken is better equipped to help us keep our community safe from crime. I am proud of his accomplishments and look forward to putting his new training to good use in our community.”
