Indiana State Police Lieutenant Edward Olibo graduated today from the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia.

JUNE 7, 2024

Lt. Olibo was among a chosen group of law enforcement officers from departments across the United States to attend the FBI National Academy. Olibo has been with the Indiana State Police for nearly 25 years and is assigned to the ISP Criminal Justice Data Division.

Two hundred and one law enforcement officers graduated from the 290th session of the National Academy, which consisted of men and women from 46 states and the District of Columbia.  The class included members of law enforcement agencies from 24 countries, five military organizations, and six federal civilian organizations.

Internationally known for its academic excellence, the National Academy offers ten weeks of advanced communication, leadership, and fitness training. Participants must have proven records as professionals within their agencies to attend. On average, these officers have 21 years of law enforcement experience and usually return to their agencies to serve in executive-level positions.

FBI Director Christopher Wray delivered remarks at the ceremony.  Class spokesperson Thomas Sloan, from Round Rock Police Department, Round Rock, Texas represented the graduating officers.

FBI Academy instructors, special agents, and other advanced-level staff provide the training; many instructors are recognized internationally in their fields. Since 1972, National Academy students have earned undergraduate and graduate credits from the University of Virginia, which accredits many of the courses offered.

55,186 graduates have completed the FBI National Academy since it began in 1935. The National Academy is held at the FBI Training Academy in Quantico, the same facility where the FBI trains its new special agents and intelligence analysts.
