The Frederick Police Department is pleased to announce that Lt Jason Keckler, Commander of the Frederick Police Department’s Community Services Division, is the newest graduate of the prestigious FBI National Academy.
On September 16, 2011, Lt Keckler successfully completed a 10 week training program consisting of advanced investigative, management, and fitness training for selected officers having proven records as professionals within their agencies. The 246th session of the FBI National Academy consisted of executive managers from 46 different states and 28 international countries all coming together at Quantico Virginia to study and enhance their management skills.
Lt Keckler was selected by the Baltimore Office of the FBI following a recommendation from Police Chief Kim C. Dine based on his education, work ethic, and commitment to the agency and law enforcement profession. The course was offered free of charge, where Lt Keckler earned a graduate certificate in Criminal Justice Education from the University of Virginia.
Chief Dine said “the Frederick Police Department is committed to enhancing the education and training of all our officers. Having the opportunity to send one of our command staff members to the FBI National Academy where he enhanced his management and leadership skills was a privilege and benefits the City of Frederick by continuing to provide an educated and highly trained force.”
