“I am very proud of Chief Deputy Rodriguez, his accomplishments and of the leadership he has provided to our deputies at the Moore County Sheriff’s Office,” said Sheriff Godfrey. “His selection by his fellow classmates as the class spokesperson for the 273rd session of the FBI National Academy Program is a very noteworthy accomplishment and clearly shows the respect that his peers have for his leadership experience and skills. He has truly been a very valuable asset to our sheriff’s office and to the citizens of Moore County.”
The FBI National Academy Program is a 10 week course consisting of advance communication, leadership, and fitness training for selected officers “who have proven records as professionals within their agencies,” according to the sheriff’s department.
FBI Director Christopher Asher Wray was the principal speaker at the ceremony. A total of 51,270 graduates now represent the alumni of the FBI National Academy since it began in 1935.
