Caroline officer graduates from FBI Academy
Lt. Angel Lambert was among 246 law enforcement officers who graduated from the FBI National Academy in
Quantico earlier this month.
Lambert is the first Caroline County Sheriff’s Office representative to ever attend the academy, which is internationally known for its academic excellence.
Lambert, who has a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice from Virginia Commonwealth University, completed six college-level courses over 10 weeks, as well as an advanced physical training program that prepared her for the completion of the U.S. Marine Corp 6.1 mile obstacle course affectionately known as “The Yellow Brick Road”.
FBI Director Robert Mueller was the principle speaker at the June 10 graduation and greeted each graduate as they were presented their diploma.
The 245th Session of the National Academy consisted of men and women from 48 states. Included in the class were members of law enforcement agencies from the District of Columbia, 22 international countries, three military organizations, and two federal civilian organizations.
Training for the program is provided by FBI Academy instructional staff, special agents, and other staff members holding advanced degrees, many of whom are recognized internationally in their fields of expertise.
“The friendships, net working, knowledge, and camaraderie that I experienced during the National Academy will last not only for a career, but a lifetime. I am humbled to have been offered this incredible opportunity and look forward to implementing what I have learned,” said Lambert.
