Eureka Police Capt. Brian Stephens recognized at awards ceremony

The Eureka Police Department (EPD) is congratulating Capt. Brian Stephens, who graduated from the 272nd session of the FBI National Academy Program in Quantico, Virginia on June 8.

The academy consisted of 232 men and women of law enforcement agencies from 48 states, the District of Columbia, international countries, military organizations and federal civilian organizations, EPD said.

According to an FBI press release, “The FBI National Academy offers ten weeks of advanced communication, leadership and fitness training for selected officers having proven records as professionals within their agencies. On average, these officers have 21 years of law enforcement experience and usually return to their agencies to serve in executive-level positions.”

"The Eureka Police Department is extremely proud of Capt. Stephens and his accomplishments, and looks forward to the insight he has gained during his time at the National Academy," Public Information Officer Brittany Powell said in a press release on Tuesday.

Capt. Stephens was also recognized for his achievements at an EPD awards ceremony at the Sequoia Conference Center on Monday.
