by Johnnie Adams

Dear Colleagues,

T his has been a tremendous journey and I am humbled and honored to be this year’s president. Twenty-five years ago in 1993 the FBI National Academy Associates, Inc. took steps to incorporate the organization officially becoming a 501(c) 3. Under the leadership of then President James F. Keesling , Session 96 the NA went from an unofficial partner with the FBI to an official non-profit training organization. The FBI National Academy Associates is rich in history. This stems from the symbolism brought forth by the tenets of our organization. I started to reflect on my time in the academy during the summer of 2005 as part of Session 222. While at the Academy I remember learning about the symbolism behind the FBI National Academy seal and what it means to be a graduate of the strongest law enforcement leadership network in the world. The seal represented a united effort on the part of its graduates to maintain the highest ideals of the law enforcement profession. These are representative of each facet of the National Academy, which are academic achievement, strength, valor and integrity. All of which are embodied in the symbols and colors of the seal. The eagle represents the courage of law enforcement, flanked by ac- ademic excellence and law and order, as represented by the olive branch. The arrows symbolize the strength in body and mind, a key component of law enforcement. The eagle stands on the United States shield. The red stripes of the shield symbolize the courage and strength necessary in law enforcement and the white stripes stand for light, peace, and truth. The unity of law enforcement is represented by the 13 stripes comprising the shield, reminiscent of the 13 original states. All brought together through the ideals of the National Acad- emy’s motto, “Knowledge, Courage, Integrity”. The peaked, beveled edge surrounding the National Academy seal represents the continuing forces of adversity facing the law enforcement community. Our profession is certainly facing many adversarial challenges both internally and externally. The tragedies that face agencies when one of their own commits suicide still plagues our profession as numer- ous studies around the country state that the incidence of suicides in law enforcement are higher statistically than that of the general popu- lation. The FBINAA is committed to reducing this through our part- nership with Acadia Healthcare and the Officer Safety and Wellness Committee . I urge each member to take steps to help those in need. Externally, we see the challenges of Cyber related crimes, human trafficking, global terrorism and mass shootings at our schools to name a few. The FBI National Academy Associates through the strength of the network will take on these challenges and help to drive solutions to keep our communities safe.

I am blessed and excited to work with our talented Executive Board, new Executive Director Howard Cook and our wonderful hard working staff to tackle some of these issues and challenges. The mem- bers of this organization are at the very core of why we exist and I encourage each of you to get involved in some way to improve our outreach with our communities. The knowledge and experience of our members is such a strength for change that we should share this through articles in our magazine, teaching opportunities at our re- trainers and mentorship of our younger officers and youth. I am excited about the future of the FBI National Academy As- sociates and the direction of our Association. The knowledge passed on from our previous board members and presidents have shaped not only my life but also the direction of the Association in such a positive direction embodying the tenets of our motto, “Knowledge, Courage, Integrity.” I will miss Joey Reynolds who will exit our board this year. His passion promoting our public, private partnerships strengthened our relationships with our sponsors and vendors who are an extension of our family. His dedication for the last 9 years has helped move our association in a progressive direction. Scott Dumas will be moving into the immediate past president’s spot and I will be sticking to him like glue. However, I sometimes needed a translation app to understand his accent. His insight and commitment was always steadfast and I recall a recent discussion that we had about the rise in school shoot- ings. Scott shared some very wise words. Rather than get in a debate over gun control, arming schools etc. He stated something to the affect “Why can’t we just all be decent to each other. If we just started a decency campaign then maybe we would end bullying and school shootings”. These are wise words and with the use of social media we can leverage and highlight the good work of all our members in their communities with #DecencyFBINAA . Thank you and this is a great honor to serve this Association as your President and I am committed to serving all of our members. Be safe, stay committed and I will see you soon!

Johnnie Adams, President FBI NAA Chief, Santa Monica College Police Department

Associate Magazine: Tell us why you first decided to take a leadership role at the FBINAA and how your involvement with the organization grew?

Associate Magazine: How do you see the FBINAA further collaborating with not only federal, state and local agencies but also reaching out to the private sector?

JOHNNIE: After graduating from the National Academy, several of my Session mates persuaded me to attend the California re-trainer in Squaw Creek. It was at this re-trainer that I saw the true value of the National Academy Associates and the strength of its network. The friendships forged during this re-trainer led me to run for the California Board and subsequently my complete involvement as the Chair of the 2011 National Conference in Long Beach. To say I drank the Kool-aid is an understatement as I ran for the National Board and was honored to be selected to represent Section 1 and the National Organization.

JOHNNIE: I have spoken with several organizations including IACP, Noble, NSA, IACLEA, and LEEDA to name a few and our dialogue has been positive. Working with the other associations to promote common goals will help our members and profession. There are opportunities to obtain Grant funding in many of the areas I have discussed. Our partnership with Motorola is an example of that with the Wellness grant. We need to continue to cultivate and enrich our bond with all of our partners, both public and private in order to promote positive change. I like to quote JohnWooden and he said,“Failure is not fatal, but failure to changemight be.”

Associate Magazine: As you start your 12-month term, are there some specific initiatives you are planning to pursue?

Associate Magazine: What do you think it is about the FBINAA that keeps it so relevant within the law enforcement community?

JOHNNIE: I can break them down into (4) categories, Training, Officer Wellness, Decency, and Community Engagement. Training is the cornerstone of our Association. The National Academy Associates continue to dedicate our resources to promote the highest degree of expertise and leadership training to law enforcement executives around the world. This year is no different as we strive to get better every year. Suicides in our profession continue to rise. According to the Ruderman Family Foundation/the International Journal of Emergency Mental Health 35% of police officers experience PTSD compared to the general population at 6.8%. Officers are also more likely to have signs of depression over the general population by 5.2%. This is unacceptable and we will continue to focus efforts in our Officer Safety and Wellness committee to train resiliency counselors for those in need. “Decency.” It is such a simple term – behavior that conforms to accepted standards of morality or respectability. Immediate Past President Scott Dumas said, “Why can’t we just be decent to each other.” This was said as we talked about the troubles in the world and that decency could solve many problems if we did just that. It is said that law enforcement is the noblest of all professions. I truly believe in that statement. So often the bad is reported over the good in the world and I know that we do good every day. Promote that, take advantage of the power of social media. When your Department does something good, record it and #DecencyFBINAA. Finally, Community Engagement. All of us engage with our community in some form or fashion. We need to market the brand of the National Academy so that our communities can see the good that comes from our members every day. Our network is strong and we need to leverage this to change the perception that some in our communities have with law enforcement.

JOHNNIE: All of our graduates had to initially apply to go to the academy and as part of that process; a nominee has to possess the following qualities: Exhibit an interest in law enforcement as a public service, a seriousness of purpose, qualities of leadership and enjoy the confidence and respect of fellow officers. The FBI is training some of the finest law enforcement officers around the world and once they graduate, become part of this great association. This constant influx and infusion of bright minds help to keep our purpose andmission current and relevant.

Associate Magazine: As a membership organization, what is the distinct thing about the FBINAA that makes law enforcement executives want to dedicate and volunteer their time?

JOHNNIE: I believe it is the shared experience of the FBI National Academy. When you live with and associate with your peers for 10 weeks there is a transformative aspect of the NA that is unique from other organizations. Working with people with great leadership skill and vision is contagious and helps to improve every aspect of your career and life.

Associate Magazine: Congratulations on being named president of the FBINAA; it has to a great honor to be chosen to lead the organization.

JOHNNIE: It is, I am humbled and honored to be the president. With so many leaders as your peers it only motivates me to try my best to improve our organization. I hope that by the end of the year, my peers will say that I did a good job.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAPLAIN by Jeff Kruithoff The FBINAA Memory Roll A t the Summer Training Conference in Quebec this past July, the attendees took a moment to reflect around the Memory Roll of those classmates who have passed in the previous year, or their passing just came to the attention of the National Office. Remembering these fellow classmates who have passed brings us back to pleasant memories, and shared experiences; however also pro- vides an opportunity to honor their participation in the finest Law Enforcement Organization today. One hundred and thirty-four fellow classmates were remembered this year ranging from Session 50 to Session 269. These classmates’ names were read during the opening ceremony as part of the tradi- tional Memory Roll held each year. This Memory Roll ceremony is very solemn and included a uniform officer from the Conference Host Chapter lighting a candle and saluting the memory table described below. Having a close friend remembered this year, I knew of all of the emotion and feeling of loss by family, friends, and coworkers during the services held at the time. It is difficult to grasp that this happened 133 more times around the world as members of our association passed on. All the members honored in the ceremony cause the audience to reflect and remember, but this year two names had special men- tion during the Memory Roll. The first was Sgt. Steve Perez from Ses- sion 210, who died in his personal vehicle while attempting to get to work at his station house during Hurricane Harvey. His vehicle became trapped in high water, and Sgt. Perez drowned in the chaos of the storm. Also remembered was William E. Schnakenberg from Session 118. William’s son Robert is a graduate of Session 251 carrying on a FBINAA tradition in that family. As the National Chaplain, I have been honored to represent the membership in conveying thoughts and prayers on your behalf to many of these families. I take that responsibility as my most treasured task of being the Chaplain. It also supports that in times like these, we can find strength and solace by leaning on our faith. As a Christ fol- lower, I would encourage all members to reach out in times of pain and loss to God as the source of peace in the chaos of life.

The tradition of the Memory Table is very humbling, and it does us well to review that each year. 1. The table, covered with a white cloth, symbolizes the loyalty and commitment of our fellow graduates throughout their career of service to their respective communities. 2. An encased and folded American Flag is placed on the table to represent the courage and sacrifice of our fellow graduates as they protected our freedom and provided a safe environment for the citizens they served. 3. A single red rose in a vase is placed on the table to symbolize the family and friends of our fellow graduates left behind. 4. A police hat and badge is placed on the table to symbolize the absence of our fellow graduates. 5. A white candle is placed on the table to be lit during the service as a constant reminder that our fellow graduates are not and will not be forgotten. 6. A framed list providing the name, session, and date of passing of each of our fellow graduates is posted on the table as a visible reminder of our fellow graduates and friends who have passed on. The Memory Table, as always, remained on display throughout the 2018 Conference so attendees could review, reflect, and remember friends who had passed on. For those who could not attend the Train- ing Conference in Quebec, please take a moment to review and reflect on the following list of classmates. Remember them fondly, and keep their family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.

God Bless,

Jeff Kruithoff, Chaplain

2018 YOUTH LEADERSHIP PROGRAM SESSION 20 T his year we welcomed sixty (60) students to the FBI National Academy in Quantico, VA from June 21-29, 2018. Similar to the FBI National Academy Program , students came from all over the United States, representing the 44 North American Chapters, one from the European Chapter, one from the Latin America/Caribbean Chapter, one respectively from FBI LEEDA, FBI Society of Former Agents and the FBI National Academy Associates Executive Board selection process. The week focused on core subject matter which included Leadership, Ethics, Values and Choices, Juvenile Crime, Character Matters, Goal Setting, Bullying, Ethical Decision Making, Accountability, Social Media and Financial Responsibility. The first Youth Leadership Program took place in 1998 and as of this year, over 900 students have graduated from the program. YLP Session #20 brought some significant changes and some im- provements to an already great program. This year the group took ad- vantage of the beautiful and historic local surroundings by including a battlefield walk to learn about the revolutionary war and leadership

lessons learned during that time at the Yorktown Battlefield. The group took a trip to the Marine Museum and learned about the importance of teamwork and the integrity that is essential of leaders who want to make a difference in the world. A trip to Washington DC included a guided tour of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Ar- lington national cemetery, and of course all the major memorials and monuments. Learning about our past helps us to make better decisions about our future. This year‘s group of exceptional young leaders proves to us once again that leadership knows no age. We thank our Youth Leadership Counselors who continue to show their dedication and share their talents with these young leaders of tomorrow. The 2018 YLP Counselors are Kelli Bailiff , Amy Bon- ney , Lene Bowers , William Gardiner , Tom Krsnich , Mike Dieppa , Leeannedra Marchese and James Rooney . We also thank the FBINAA Chapters and YLP sponsors Justice Federal Credit Union and Cody Systems for their support of this program.

I n 2017, The FBI National Academy Associates established a Community Engagement Committee (CEC) to focus on strength- ening the bond between law enforcement and the communities they serve. The Committee is committed to utilizing partnerships with public and private entities in order to identify, develop and promote best practices in community/law enforcement relations. The CEC worked with the 2018 FBINAA Annual Conference Committee to establish a legacy gift that would be awarded to a group in that area and presented during the Annual Conference. The RMDJQ-Repaire Jeunesse de Québec (Boys & Girls Club of Québec City) was chosen as this year’s Legacy Gift recipient due to its strong Mission. The RMDJQ-Repaire Jeunesse de Québec is a group of 31 Youth Centers (maisons de jeunes, in French). Youth Centers provide a safe living environment for teenagers aged 12 to 17 in which they can so- cialize with peers, get information on different topics involving adoles- cence, talk to caring professionals, get assistance with their projects, be involved in their community or just be somewhere else than at home. By going to Youth Centers, teenagers can become active, critical and responsible citizens. With their 31 Youth Centers and 15 points of service, the RM- DJQ-Repaire Jeunesse de Québec reaches more than 10,000 teenagers annually in the Capitale-Nationale region. 2018 FBINAA COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT LEGACY GIFT RECIPIENT
