We are proud to announce that Chief Francisco will be graduating from the Federal Bureau of Investigation National Academy tomorrow morning from the academy headquarter in Quantico, VA.

The FBI National Academy is a professional development course for domestic and international law enforcement leaders selected through a nomination process.

Chief Francisco was nominated by Navajo Division of Public Safety Director Jesse Delmar and is one of 255 leaders representing state, local, county, tribal, military, federal, and international law enforcement professionals who are graduating this Friday.

Delmar stated his recommendation reflected Chief Francisco’s excellent leadership as Chief of Police for the Navajo Police Department.

“We are all very proud and grateful Chief was selected to attend this academy. He is paving the way for the future leaders of the Navajo Police Department,” Delmar said.

Chief Francisco studied under a 10-week training program offering a prestigious law enforcement curriculum in executive development and leadership program.

The coursework reflected a variety of academics, including law, behavior science, law enforcement communication, forensic science, terrorism/terrorism mindset, intelligence theory, and physical fitness.

“I am extremely grateful for this opportunity. Being a part of this academy and representing our Navajo Police Department has been a humbling experience. The camaraderie I have built with professionals around the world is a valuable network that will benefit our NPD leaders. What I have learned here will be instilled within our department and will help to elevate the public safety services we provide the Navajo people.” Chief Francisco said.

The National Academy was established in 1935 and has graduated over 52,540 students.
