Mazur graduates

from Quantico program

Atlantic City Police Department Deputy Chief William Mazur, a 22-year veteran, was among 221 law enforcement officers who graduated March 28 from the FBI National Academy Program at Quantico, Va.

The 256th Session of the National Academy consisted of men and women from 47 states, and members of law enforcement agencies from the District of Columbia, 23 countries, five military organizations, and two federal civilian organizations.

The National Academy Program, held at the FBI Academy, offers 10 weeks of advanced investigative, management and fitness training for selected officers with proven records. Training is provided by the FBI Academy instructional staff, special agents, and other staff members holding advanced degrees, many of whom are recognized internationally in their fields of expertise.
